Writing Exercises: Newspaper Character Sketches

Using a daily newspaper (or internet variants thereof), do any or all of the following:

--write a typical day's schedule for one of the letters-to-the-editor writers
--write a resume for a baby listed on the Births page, 30 years in the future
--write a holiday-greeting letter for one of the people listed in the Personals/Matchmakers pages
--write a Facebook profile for someone who posted one of the classifieds under "Misc."

I'll post whatever I come up with for this exercise in a couple days!

I don't know if you drive / if you love the ground beneath you
