OK so I feel obligated to make a puzzle that is not a duplicate of a previous one.
We can "straighten" the situation out by requiring that the words made from a 3x3 array of letters not have bends or kinks.
This reduces the maximum number to sixteen words.
W D O
A I D
S Q N
permits AID WIN WAS and SAW, but not DID DIN SIN WAD or ODD.
Sixteen is perfect, and minimum for an entry is ten.
You make the grid. Duplicate letters are permitted.
