I Must Let My Lawn Die

On April 16, 2000, I wrote in my journal. “If you want to be a writer you have to let your lawn die.”  

I mowed my lawn today. I mowed it three days ago, and I will have to mow it again later this week. I would like to add to the quote about letting your lawn die if you want to be a writer.  If you want to be a writer don’t fertilize your lawn.
