Backpocket Crosswords: Handmade Puzzles

Joanne created these 24 handmade puzzles with common words and user-friendly clues. While Joanne and her husband Tom waited for his radiation treatments, they (and others in the waiting room) worked on the clues, which seemed to calm their nerves, raise their spirits, and even get a couple of laughs.

Books can change the world. Books have changed the world. When you write from your heart, your fears melt. You recognize a safe, familiar place and keep going. Stand in your truth and express yourself. Your heart knows everything. You can trust it. Your heart loves you. Then, when you have written your book, you will be joyful, confident, and proud … and feel something very close to giggly. In other words, you will know peace. This is the power of writing your book from your heart: It can change the world—one book at a time.
