The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: November Edition

This month's crossword celebrates the birthdays of two noted literary figures. Figure out the word chain and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

Here's how it works: the crossword relies on how the Visual Thesaurus links from one word to another to form a chain of synonyms. Use the Visual Thesaurus word maps to figure out how one step links to the next. You'll find that the first and last steps in the chain are also the names of famous literary figures whose birthdays both fall on November 30.

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the ten links of the chain by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the ten links, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is December 21, 2012. Have fun and good luck!
