Lenny loved writing stories. Awful, contrived stories.
Lenny also loved petty crime: vandalism, shoplifting, selling alcohol to minors. Which he was as skilled at as he was making believable plots and characters. Jailers groaned when Lenny appeared, since he read his fiction aloud 24-7. And it was all truly horrendous.
Eventually Lenny was caught poaching salmon, a felony. But he was happy—the state pen meant free meals, hot showers, and a general population which had to listen to his new, multiple-volume novel.
So in the end, you could say Lenny had just been fishing for a captive audience.
