Had to really think today - it's so much harder when 1a/1d are the last ones you get. (Always the plants & animals i fall down on)
PW quite straightforward
Get better soon @Sunbird24

What are people's tactics?
Do you try and answer in order?
I usually try 1 across and then the down clues, so at least I know the first letter.
I'd love to hear other methods

@Albaniarocks I look at the across clues first and then the down putting in what I can, then do the the same process hoping the letters I've managed to get in help. Going to try your process tomorrow 😊

Third day in a row under the minute (I think).
If I get 1a I then move to the downs. If I don't get 1a I move to the downs. If I get 1d I then move back to the acrosses! Otherwise go in order.
Hope you feel better soon @Sunbird24

I try and answer the clues as they come up - on my phone so I get each A then each D. If I don’t know the word right away (in about 2s) I move straight on to the next and then go back and fill in any gaps at the end. Quick scan for typos then the PW.
On a separate note, this morning I have learned why you should never sneeze lying down 🤧

Didn't know 1A in that context and lots of the other clues were a bit too vague for me today so I was skipping about all over the place.
On a very good day, I'll know 1A and the rest of the across clues immediately, then just need to sense-check before completing the PW.
Otherwise I try to complete all the down clues.
On my slower days, like today I'm not able to complete all the across or all the down clues on the first pass and my brain will rapidly (usually) jump around all the gaps.

Hope @Sunbird24 gets better soon and to the poster with the left hand feed situation, well done! That's a feat.
