    Congratulations on your first publication! This was so fun, however the referential clues seem to be numbered incorrectly: In 10A10AHow we can get from 1A to 19A[----], 12A12AAvian symbol of peace, or of 19A[----], and 14A14AA 18A for a 12A (or a pigeon)[----], replace 16A16AAdd an impurity to silicon, or one's body[----] with 19A19AWhat we must keep alive on our way to a better future[----]. Also in 14A14AA 18A for a 12A (or a pigeon)[----], replace 15A15ADeal with something hard[----] with 18A18APentagonal plate on a ballfield[----].

      Thank you so much @Shivangi! Especially nice to hear from a constructor whose puzzles I so enjoy solving.
      Also, really appreciate the flag on the mis-numbered clues — I totally forgot that Crosshare treats word ladders "as if" they are crosswords (and thus numbers the down entries even though they are not really parts of the solve). I think I fixed it now!

      Good job! My only feedback would be to use less repetition of letters, for example, the "o" and "e" are unchanged from numbers 9 to 19

        Totally agree… I thought about trying to revise this but ultimately barged ahead to hit publish 😃
        Will definitely be trying to do this better next time!

                That was my first encounter with a word ladder: thanks, it was fun! ☺️
                • Sendhil Revuluri constructor · 2023-10-28T21:07:31.316Z
                  Thank you for solving! @Elle has published at least 13 that are all really good (definitely better than this one)… you will likely enjoy them!
