Q: How do I get started writing puzzles?

A: Look carefully at many examples of the puzzle type that you're interested in, and analyze how the puzzle works. Read the solving instructions provided in the magazine carefully; there may be certain conventions to the puzzle (such as starting letters spelling out the author and title, or acceptable minimum word lengths) that you were unaware of. After you've created your first attempt, have a puzzle-loving friend solve it to see if he or she runs into any problems.
