April, the difficult month


A2Z-BADGE 2016-smaller_zpslstazvib

That’s why.

I need a challenge so I signed up, for a second year, to the A to Z April blog-a-long thingumy challenge. ย Go here for the details. Join in, even! You blog the alphabet across every day, save Sundays, during April. Today is the Theme Reveal for those who (a) want to and (b) have a theme.

What’s mine? Well, no secret really. I’m a bit of a London lover so I thought I’d show case a few things about my city that you may or may not know, with a few comments and memories of my own mixed in.

Last year I visited places I’d seen and enjoyed. Some proved more popular than others.

Here are three that seemed to pas muster to whet/renew your appetite:

N is for Napier and other places worth a-deco

P is for Peru

Z is the end?

If you only have time for one, have a look at Z. It means the most to me.

And let me leave you with this; even in the middle of the bustle of a working day London can still offer places of some peace and tranquility?.Who recognises this?

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame.

    I’ve been giving this challenge some thought, and I think I might go for it. I’m partially inspired by your NaNo effort last year so I’m considering writing a short story each day…
    I like the sound of your theme. I was born in Carshalton, and I enjoy learning bits and pieces about London’s commuter towns/villages. Good luck with it all!

  8. Great theme. Good luck. I look forward to reading about your ‘tours’ in April. Sigh. I don’t know how you all do it: every single day. It’s all I can do is get out of bed in the morning. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Good luck! I know I wouldn’t be able to keep up. London certainly has some wacky looking buildings! (I hope you won’t take offense – wacky in my world is cool).

  12. What better than London as your theme. I’ve walked through those gardens. I believe they are just off Fleet Street?

    Looking forward to reading your posts next month – I think London is a city filled with endless secrets, so it’ll be fun to discover a few ๐Ÿ™‚
    As for me, I’m heading to Camp NaNo, so I’ll be lucky to post half a dozen times in April, I think!
    Why do we do these things to ourselves? ๐Ÿ˜‰
