* Creator/StanLee, during the [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]], not only supervised MarvelComics but wrote virtually the entire line, from [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Amazing Spider-Man]] to ''ComicBook/MillieTheModel''. It was a huge workload for any one man, and led to the development of what came to be known as the "Marvel Method." Instead of writing a full script, Stan would write a general plot, which was then given to (for example) Creator/JackKirby to draw. After receiving Jack's pencils, Stan would then write the finished script. The Marvel Method put a lot of the storytelling responsibility on the artist's shoulders, and later led to considerable controversy (not to mention lawsuits) over who should get what sort of credit for "creating" the story. On the other hand, [[TropesAreNotBad some of the greatest American comics ever]] were produced under this system, and arguably key creators' later solo efforts never matched the quality of their "Marvel Method" collaborations.

It was a huge workload for any one man, and led to the development of what came to be known as They operated via the "Marvel Method." Instead of writing a full script, Stan Lee would write a general plot, which was then given to (for example) Creator/JackKirby or Creator/SteveDitko (in the case of Spiderman and Dr. Strange) to draw. After receiving Jack's pencils, Stan would then write the finished script. This was a huge workload for both men, especially for Kirby who drew ComicBook/TheMightyThor, ComicBook/FantasticFour and other anthology titles (it generally takes a lot longer to draw a comic than to write a script, leave alone the outlines and dialogue that Stan Lee wrote), all produced in a short period of time. ** The Marvel Method put a lot of the storytelling responsibility on the artist's shoulders, and later led to considerable controversy (not to mention lawsuits) over who should get what sort of credit for "creating" the story. On story, especially since towards the other hand, end, Kirby and Ditko supplied dialogue suggestions in boxes for Lee to follow. Nonetheless Lee deserves credit for creating an unified sense of style without which the Marvel SharedUniverse would probably not take off (both Kirby and Ditko being too individualistic in style to really cohere together without Lee). This led to [[TropesAreNotBad some of the greatest American comics ever]] were produced under this system, and arguably ever]]. And none of the key creators' later creator's solo efforts never (Lee's, Kirby's, Ditko's) matched the quality impact of their "Marvel Method" collaborations.

* Creator/NicolasWindingRefn (of ''{{Film/Drive}}'' fame) has been hit by this lately. First, there was a ''Film/LogansRun'' remake set to star Creator/RyanGosling, which never materialized. Second, there was an adaptation of ''ComicBook/TheIncal'', also set to star Gosling, which also never materialized. Finally, he settled on an original project, ''Film/TheNeonDemon'', which has yet to be released, along with producing a remake of ''Film/ManiacCop''.

* AaronSorkin. Not only was he a playwright in the '90s, he was also writing film scripts (and re-writing others, sometimes without credit), adapting his own plays, and then he decided to take a break by writing two TV shows ''simultaneously''. Of course, he was later busted for cocaine possession, which may or may not explain how he was able to write both the first season of ''TheWestWing'' and the second season of ''SportsNight'' in one year. He seems to have slowed down somewhat since leaving ''TheWestWing''. Whether or not the second season of ''SportsNight'' would have been better if Sorkin hadn't been suffering ADCD is anyone's guess, as the ADCD may well have been the byproduct of being ScrewedByTheNetwork.

Mucking about with his Website/YouTube channel (Which was giving him pains because of suspension), working through ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' 's review, cons, building a PC for a friend, being active on Twitter, WebVideo/CounterMonkey, fixing his site when it crashes, and still trying to enjoy things like, y'know, movies on the side. No wonder he needs a haircut. * [[{{Moviebob}} Bob Chipman]] has [[http://blip.tv/gameoverthinker/i-m-sorry-but-ea-should-be-sorrier-6555721 stated]] that this (combined with several New England snowstorms making it impossible to shoot) was the reason why ''The Game Overthinker'' experienced [[TroubledProduction so many delays]] in early 2013.

* Creator/RainerWernerFassbinder had directed nearly fifty movies in a 13-year career which was only cut short because [[AuthorExistenceFailure he died]]. He also directed theater and radio plays in this period. Fassbinder shot and edited movies quickly, he released four movies a year in his early career and slowed down to ''two'' movies a year at the time of his death.

* OrsonWelles had this reputation, but in reality the reason he so often had to delay one film or cancel another was because he ran out of money and had to do more acting work so he could afford to continue.
to:
* OrsonWelles The early career of Creator/OrsonWelles was notorious for his hyperactive rate of productivity. He did multiple theatre and radio shadows, magic shows and any other idea that struck his fancy at the same time. Then he made ''Film/CitizenKane'' where he was busy from Day 1 to Premiere. His later career had Welles trying to keep this reputation, rate of production but in reality the reason he struggled because he so often had to delay one film or cancel another was because he ran out of money and had to do more acting work so he could afford to continue.

* GeorgeRRMartin is working on an epic fantasy series, ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', and also has his hands in a dozen other smaller scale projects, not least being creative-consulting and writing an episode a season of ''Series/GameOfThrones''. And he's quite the fan of football and collecting miniature knights. During the egregiously long wait between the fourth and fifth books, fans began to grumble that Martin was too distracted by his other projects. He wrote a DearNegativeReader on the subject, saying that the people complaining "didn't want him to do anything but wrote on ''ASongOfIceAndFire'' - ever!" Part of the problem might be that Martin has spent his entire career switching between genres and mediums, and now he's been stuck writing the same story about the same characters for well over a decade. [[FranchiseZombie He doesn't seem to be having much fun with it anymore, but obviously he can't stop until the damn thing is finished]]. Apparently what made him decide to write a DoorStopper series was that he wanted a chance to make the story as long as he wanted. He may have [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor gotten a bit more than he bargained for...]]
