* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' abruptly ended after four seasons for exactly this reason. ''Creator/GenndyTartakovsky'' wanted to focus on other things and intended to end it with a movie, but Cartoon Network just pulled the plug. The movie is currently stuck in DevelopmentHell, and the death of ''{{Creator/Mako}}'' probably didn't help much either.

He eventually just settled on doing a fifth season that was released ''thirteen'' years after the fourth.

* ''PokemonSpecial'' is in a unique position in that its creator can suffer ADCD with it alone. Different arcs are published simultaneously and in different magazines; this can get confusing when reading the magazines as the events don't properly get put in order until the official volumes are released. The Emerald arc was put onto hiatus for a whole year, the Platinum arc went through a major ScheduleSlip, and the HGSS arc was horribly rushed. On the plus side, Kusaka Hidenori is allowed to make [[ReCut major revisions in the official volume releases]], smoothing out quite a lot of continuity kinks and expanding the plots as he does so.

* Creator/JossWhedon with his projects for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' and ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods''. And then he did a secret modern-day adaptation of ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'' immediately after finishing ''Avengers''... y'know, for kicks. And then he managed Marvel's Phase 2 film slate (where he directed ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''), as well as working on the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' series (where he left brother Jed and his wife to actually run the series), an experience that made him break ties with the studio afterwards.

** [[http://www.fanfiction.net/~ayamacchiato Aya Macchiato]] tends to suffer from this. Primarily writing for the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fandom, she is known for creating [[SoCoolItsAwesome some of the best]] [[Main/TheDarkSide dark!Harry]] fanfics on the web... but she sometimes gets distracted by the next PlotBunny that comes by, so partially because of this trope, pretty much anything and/or everything she writes tends to inevitably be dropped and get turned into a DeadFic.

* Tarantino's buddy Creator/RobertRodriguez suffers from this. After ''Film/SinCity'' came out, he began talking about a pair of sequels filmed back-to-back with new original material written by Frank Miller. After Miller failed to produce (mostly due to his new love of film directing) the sequels hit a major snag and even Mickey Rourke publicly announced he wasn't waiting up. Then, after ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}'' was released Rodriguez was not only attached to ''Film/SinCity 2/3'' but a ''Film/{{Machete}}'' feature film (which happened years later) plus remakes of ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'' and ''Film/RedSonja'' with Main/RoseMcGowan (both of which were dropped). The ''Sin City'' sequel only came out of DevelopmentHell in 2012. Once again, nobody believes any news regarding future Rodriguez projects until the cameras start rolling.

* Creator/MasiOka has become rather prolific as he's aged. In addition to appearing as Max on ''Series/HawaiiFive0'', he also co-wrote the pilot of ''Series/TheCorrectors'' for Creator/SyFy, is the producer of a series called ''Series/{{ESL}}'' (both of which have apparently become {{Zero Episode Wonder}}s) and a live-action ''Film/DeathNote2017'' adaptation (which he also has a part in, in addition to producing), wrote the concept for ''Film/TheDefenders'' (which also seems to be stuck in DevelopmentHell), works with Creator/TheSecondCity to bring StandUpComedy to Japan (and occasionally works as a guest teacher as well as consultant[=/=]patron), consults for Japanese start-up companies on how to appeal to international markets, and he's the head of Creator/MobiusDigital, the game company [[StartMyOwn he started when he couldn't get someone to work on his project ideas]] (so far, Mobius has only announced one project at a time, but no one knows if that's Oka's doing or if the kids he hired are just like, "Dude, boss, ''we can't bend space-time'' to get more than one thing done at once!"). These confirmed projects alone would deprive him of all opportunities for sleep, but there are also rumors he writes romance novels; it's unknown if he's ever released one, but if he has, it's under a pen name.

** Creator/NimbusLlewelyn, known for writing epic crossovers such as ''Fanfic/TheWizardInTheShadows'' and ''[[Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm The Child of the Storm universe]]'', is infamous for this. While over half his posted fics are complete, almost all of those are stand alone one shots. An inconsistent update schedule doesn't help - sometimes he goes months at a time without updating, sometimes he puts out three chapters in a week. The scale of his writing doesn't really help, either, with chapters frequently exceeding 10,000 words, and the latter fic has an unpublished word count spiralling into the millions. This is apparently part of the problem, since he frequently gets distracted by new plot bunnies, which he partially develops and then almost never publishes, or by later parts of the fic 'verse. He has acknowledged this tendency, however, and has stated that if he ever loses the will to write further sequels to ''Child of the Storm'', he'll hand his notes over to someone he thinks will do the fic justice, or post a synopsis of what was intended to happen with excerpted scenes.
