Latest attempt at a themeless. I'm still not sure how people create these things with any regularity and make them high quality. Hopefully things will get easier. I've mostly been starting with some 8 or so letter string in the upper left and then doing something similar in the NE/SW with a few intersecting answers. I think I'm going to try some different grid designs and see what happens.
In non-crossword related news, my wife and I are getting a golden retriever. We get to pick her up at the end of the month and are super excited. A Halloween present, if you will. I'll post pictures when the time comes.
