* Each of the novels in Creator/CherryWilder's ''Literature/{{Torin}}'' trilogy is an account written for posterity by that novel's protagonist. The narrator/protagonist of the second novel mentions that she's not much of a storyteller and that she's only doing it because she was asked to specially by the narrator/protagonist of the first novel, who'd missed some important events that she'd been present for.

* In ''Literature/AlicesAdventuresInWonderland'', Alice muses (while trapped in the White Rabbit's house due to her new gigantic size) that "there ought to be a book written about her," and plans to do just that when she grows up--only to realize that she's technically grown "up" right now, and there's no room to write.

* The classic book InterviewWithTheVampire (and the movie too, I would guess) is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin an interview done by a guy with a vampire]]. It is implied that Louis (the vampire) destroyed the record afterwards, but in the next book n the series (''The Vampire Lestat'') the book has been published to the world. Then Lestat himself took over that custom and started writing his adventures, with each successive book referencing the former one.
* Megan Whalen Turner's ''[[TheQueensThief The Thief]]'', implies that Gen wrote the book chronicling his adventures at the request of his sovereign.

* Shin spends a good chunk of ''Literature/SailorNothing'' working on her book. The epilogue shows that it was pretty successful, even if it was usually interpreted as allegory.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomics/GirlGenius'' is written by Creator/PhilFoglio and his wife Kaja, also known in-story as Professors Foglio and Foglio of Transylvania Polygnostic University, who wrote the comic as textbooks for their "True Events in the Life of Agatha Heterodyne 101" class. They subsequently came to our world and published them here, to escape notice by the people they were writing about. So far in-story, Kaja has been seen as an announcer at the Vienna Opera, and Phil is an itinerant storyteller and the great-great-grandson of the [[SuperSoldier Jager]] Oggie.
** The illustrated versions of the Girl Genius radio plays also feature the Foglios, performing the radio plays and then having to escape after being tracked down by Agatha.
** The idea of writing down the various adventures of the characters is referenced (and [[TitleDrop title-dropped]]) by [[PirateGirl Bangladesh]] [[AxCrazy DuPree]].
--> '''Bang:''' I mean, if they ever write this down, they ain't gonna be calling it "''Boy'' Genius".
