\newcommand{\FN}{1]{\unskip\footnote{\hspace{2pt}#1}}

in the document preamble, then use \FN in place of \footnote.
The \unskip can be omitted, it is something I like to use
so I can indent \FN and its argument in the code, so
it is easy to see what is main text and what is footnote text.

footmisc offers a layout command, but why load a package
when a single \newcommand line suffices?
