* Creator/SarahAHoyt [[https://madgeniusclub.com/2016/08/17/when-the-gate-opens/ stated]] that stories tend to just leap into her head, usually at rather inopportune times, and refuse to go away.

Justified to a certain extent: The RuleOfDrama dictates that what makes the best story isn't always the easiest thing to write. The author might ''know'' that killing off Bob is the most exciting/logical/dramatic/marketable course of action, but we can assume that as an author, he ''likes'' his character and will suffer a bit of heartache over it...heartache that is going to be magnified when the move proves to be extremely unpopular, or the fans react with horror and run away screaming, "FanonDiscontinuity!"

* When discussing ''Film/DragMeToHell'', Creator/SamRaimi [[https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20100102081824/http://screencrave.com/2009-05-27/sam-raimi-interview-for-drag-me-to-hell states]] that while in his view the CruelTwistEnding [[KarmicTwistEnding was earned by the protagonist]], "Maybe she was a little over punished. I wouldn’t have been as harsh personally." But this also showed how she is relatable because Raimi himself is flawed like her - "I wish I had more noble problems. She’s such an awful character, it’s really embarrassing. That’s how writers work I think."

* Ben Aaronovitch on ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'': "What usually happens is I start writing and the characters start going off in all sorts of directions, and I'm going "No! Get back to the plot, you bastards!"

* In ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'', the reason why Niizuma Eiji can formulate plots so quickly is apparently because he can "see his characters move on their own."

* Amazingly PlayedForDrama in ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' - [[spoiler: The character Fakir is [[RealityWarper literally capable]] of RewritingReality by telling stories, but if he doesn't write well enough then his stories start conforming to reality instead of the other way around. In one instance he tries to write that monsters stopped attacking the main character...and finds he has to write that they kept attacking.]]

* In her essay ''My Friend Mr Campion'', Margery Allingham wrote that Literature/AlbertCampion just appeared at the dinner table in ''The Crime at Black Dudley'', and she had no idea who he was or what he was doing there, which was annoying as that was very much not the way she normally wrote.

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': According to Kubo, her initial ideas were knocked off-track when [[spoiler:Yuri and Victor fell in love instead of keeping their relationship strictly as coach and skater as initially intended]], and certain plot points [[spoiler:such as the possibility of separating the pair at the end of the series]], no longer made any sense. In short, the characters hijacked the plot.
