A blog is born!

And unlike a baby, it had to be named before it could be born. Also unlike a baby, the blog has no gender. But it was still difficult to choose a name.

Why Creative Fog?

  • because fog  creates a mysterious, writer-ly atmosphere. It seems like anything can  happen in the fog — it’s secretive, ephemeral, and fleeting. Much like the creative muse.
  • because fog is iconic to San Francisco, where I live — it existed  long before the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, or even the city itself.

  • because fog, as Carl Sandburg wrote, “comes on little cat feet…” — that’s how ideas creep up on me, out of a creative fog.
  • because fog refreshes what is stale and tired, including my imagination.
  • because “fog” rhymes with “blog.”

  1. Welcome to the wonderful of blogs, Deb. You look like you are off to a great start. And here’s hoping there are more great posts looming on the horizon, just under that fog.

  2. I am from California and San Francisco is one of those places I like to visit but wouldn’t want to live there. One of my best friends in the whole world lives there and I will be visiting her at the end of the month. Can’t wait. You have a very entertaining way of writing. I very much enjoyed it.

    I would love for you to check out my post http://morgandragonwillow.com/2013/04/a-to-z-poetry-darkness.html

    Happy travels on your A to Z journey and I hope you love writing in your new blog.

  3. Fog…once in the area we toured The Presidio and the fog was so thick it was hard to see things, but somehow it seemed so appropriate. Fog makes things so quiet, and reverent.


  4. You have a lovely blog. I admire you for attempting the A to Z challenge. I’m not so committed. So clever of you to base the challenge on food. I’m very impressed. You must have a logical as well as imaginative mind.
