Hint #1 - Pretend It's The Daily Paper #1 - Seek To Destroy
The same tricks will work here that work everywhere else crossword puzzles are worked on. Begin by searching through the clues for clues you know.
Hint #2 - Pretend It's The Daily Paper #2 - Begin With Assurances
Make sure the first words you fill in are the ones one know for certain are correct.
Hint #3 - Pretend It's The Daily Paper #3 - That Could Only Be...
Look for letter patterns within the word. Have an "-I_G" at the end of a word? Does the clue indicate a word that could end in "-ING" as a possibility?
Hint #4 - Pretend It's The Daily Paper #4 - I Know It A Little...
Find complex words (or multi-word solutions) where you know part of the answer. Y'know: all the normal stuff.
Hint #5 - Scratch Pad, Anyone?
Two things that are different from the newspaper are the fact that you can't see all the clues in a list and the fact that a newspaper provides area to write down note. While it's more than ridiculous to try writing down all of the clues, you CAN get some scratch paper for note-taking.
