Puzzle 106: Pentowords

We’re reaching the end of the series of LM practice puzzles. Pentowords is an interesting new (to me) type that was also on the mixed round. The one on the contest was built around a letter packing argument (though I only half saw that while solving), this one is quite different.

Rules Split the grid into the twelve different pentominos, and write each of the given words into one of the pentominos, left to right then top to bottom. Same letters must not touch by edge. Some letters are already given.
