Who is wearing these socks? Create a persona in today's creative writing exercise.

Working from the feet up, put together an outfit for the person wearing these socks.

Explore their character through their clothing choices.

Do they have a story that suggests itself to you?

Give them a name and start to write a story where they are the viewpoint character.
