This post is part of our celebrations for Mechanical Pencil Day, on 05/07 - the 5th of July, 2018.
While Amanda was musing over the suitability of mechanical pencils for puzzles in preparation for and upcoming post, she hit on the fact that modern technology can help to generate crosswords from your own set of clues. So she made a crossword puzzle of her own, on a mechanical pencil theme!
Copying it straight from the computer to here wouldn't have fitted the theme as neatly, though, so she drew the whole thing with a mechanical pencil! If you want to have a go, there are hints in our other Mechanical Pencil Day blog posts, and other answers are to be found on our site. No prizes, just the satisfaction of a job well done, and if you print it out first, perhaps a good excuse to use your mechanical pencils!
