Due to continuing ill-health including a shoulder problem that restricts my ability to type, I’m planning to take an extended break from unpaid crossword work to achieve a proper recovery. During this rest period I will be reassessing the future of the Stickler Weekly as numbers continue to decline and have reached a level that makes me question the time and effort needed to keep it going. I know there’s more I could do in the way of promotion and asking for links from other crossword sites, but it all takes time which I seem to have less and less of these days.
I know some of you will be bitterly disappointed by another break but I have nothing to offer in the interim that doesn’t require significant time to set up. I have no stock and published Stickler puzzles are kept in a raw format that requires quite a lot of work to put into the format used on this site.
The next Stickler Weekly won’t be until July 1 by which time I hope to be fully recovered and the future will be clearer.
