For Lindsay Lohan, the 13 days she spent in lockup were harrowing, but documenting the experience on paper helped her survive to see the light of day again.

The troubled actress used her time behind bars to brush up on writing, one of her favorite hobbies, and now she plans on trying to turn the works into a profit.
