Comment to 'Times Quick Cryptic No 1242 by Teazel' by plusjeremy in times_xwd_times

I got in a right muddle to begin with by biffing ‘armless’ at 8a. Patently obvious at the time but patently wrong when none of the first three down solutions would fit. Once I’d sorted that out the rest fell quickly into place in 5’15”.

Fascinating blog by Jeremy. I think this type of stream-of-consciousness’ approach could prove invaluable to novices. It also made me think about my own solving method which is far more scattergun, flirting around the grid as solutions or sometimes part solutions come to mind.

Thanks to Jeremy and Teazel.
