Puzzle #7: Mixed Feelings
This puzzle has an anagram (scrambling) theme. A feeling is given as a clue and an anagram in the grid. I tried cluing the grid entries normally and putting the feelings in parentheses, but that seemed too easy.
I also gave the grid large, open corners, since adding legs to break them up would’ve created a ton of 3-letter words. Ideally, the number of 3’s is kept to a minimum (this grid has 18, which is pushing it). The trickiest entry is AURA, I think, so I put an extra hint in the clue to help with that one.
