Just write the word!
On how many different ways you can "write" the word "SODALG" starting with the red letter S and moving afterwards on to the neighboring letter.
Details and assumptions:
A "Neighboring letter" is either down, up, right, left, up-left, up-right, down-left or down-right from the temporary letter. For example, if we start with S and word "SO" is required, there are 8 ways to "write" it.
