  3. Start with the fill in the blank crossword clues first. Usually, they are the easiest to solve, and they give hints on how to fill out the rest of your crossword puzzle.
  4. Go for the short words first. Short words are a lot easier and help you gain extra clues on longer word answers.
  5. Check for plurals. Often you may have the correct answer but in the singular form. Always check to see if the plural form fits.
  6. Ask around for help. Ask people you know, who knows; they might know the answer right away.
  7. Relax! It's all in fun.
