* ''Literature/{{Haunted 2005}}'', by Creator/ChuckPalahniuk: The story is about a creative writing retreat wherein, instead of trying to come up with story ideas, the participants opt to torture each other so they can write a book... about their harrowing experience on the writers' retreat.

* When Norwegian author ''Karl Ove Knausgård'' wrote his seven-volum Magnum Opus "My Struggle", he was rightfully accused of this, especially by his former wives and girlfriends, because he wrote of his own life in minute detail, sparing noone.

** Notably averted in an earlier episode. While searching through the holodeck's database, Paris finds what appears to be a holonovel casting the Maquis members of the crew as mutineers. Despite this portrayal, even the "villains" happily play along. Ultimately, it's revealed it wasn't even meant to be art, but a training simulation made by Tuvok for security members when mutiny was considered a real danger before trust with the Maquis provisional crew was established. [[spoiler: ''Then'' it turns out that one of their old enemies had rigged it to turn into a DeathTrap for whoever used it.]]

Added DiffLines:

** When Marge wrote a romance novel called ''The Harpooned Heart'', she wrote in the main character Temperance's husband Captain Mordecai as an abusive, selfish slob like Homer, and her love interest Cyris is an all-around good guy based on Ned Flanders. Note that she originally wrote Mordecai as a caring, suave husband until Homer put on yet another display of lazy [[{{Jerkass}} jerkassery]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HomeAndAway'': The show seems to portray writers as having no original ideas, just copying things that happened to them. One classic example involved Angel entering a writing competition with a romance story, and basing it heavily on best friend Sarah's doomed romance with a JerkWithAHeartOfJerk. She thought she'd changed enough details that no-one would know what her inspiration was. Everyone did, leading to a big falling out with Sarah.
