I’m a sock guy. I’ve got so many, my drawer is literally overflowing with them. Damn thing doesn’t close without a battle. My wife gets mad at me when I buy more, but in the grand scheme of things, I think we can agree that there are worse obsessions. Also, I get & give a lot as gifts. They’re kind of my trademark. After yesterday’s less-than-stellar post, I felt like I needed something fun.

So today I took on funky sock sites.

There are quite a few out there. The Joy of Socks, Sock it to Me, Freakers… They’re all fun and quirky. Freakers has ahhhmazing branding, B-T-Dubs. I love them like candy. Fantastic socks, too.

Anyway, here are 100 lines about funky socks. OK, 103…

Overall: Yay! I liked this one. The lines came fast and furious, and I think they turned out well

Lessons: Once again, it’s sooo much easier to write about things I like. I blew through 60 lines without even touching my templates. It seems like most of the target audience is female, so a few themes steer that way, but overall, I was writing for me. So that helped. It was nice that I could get playful and the tone fit my style. So high-5 to me for that. One of the sites had a great line about “sock-cess” that I could have played off, but instead, I’ll just respect their work. Nice pun.

Think my tone might fit your style too? Shoot me a note. We’ll talk.

I pulled some good themes from the reviews and tweaked them as necessary. There’s gold in those things.

Time: 1:01, broken up into 2 sessions. Bam!
