* One of [[JeanneDArchetype Leliana's]] possible comments at the end of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is that she might write a book about the game's events...but that she'll leave out details about Fereldan food, which isn't any good even at the palace.
** ''Videogame/DragonAgeII'' [[FramingDevice opens]] with Varric having ''already'' written "The Tale of the Champion" about Hawke's adventures in Kirkwall. Unfortunately for him he couldn't resist embellishing things somewhat, so the rest of the game [[HowWeGotHere takes place in flashback]] as Cassandra grills him on what ''really'' happened. The fallout from that results in him having a ringside seat for the events of ''Videogame/DragonAgeInquisition''; the credits of the Trespasser DLC reveal that he went on to write a book about the Inquisitor titled "All This Shit is Weird".

* In ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood'', Ezio's fellow Assassin NiccoloMachiavelli mentions he will write a book based on Ezio's exploits. It's heavily implied to be ''ThePrince''. In the novelization of the game, he actually jots down notes while Ezio is giving a speech to the crowd.

to:

* Creator/JohnWyndham was rather fond of this trope: ''Literature/TheMidwichCuckoos'', ''Literature/TheDayOfTheTriffids'' and ''Literature/TheKrakenWakes'' all use it as a framing device for the first-person narrative. ''Day of the Triffids'' takes it still further by briefly mentioning [[HeroOfAnotherStory another character who did much the same thing]], and a third who said he intended to do the same, but didn't survive the CosyCatastrophe and get the chance.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
