* 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.

* The real life [[Franchise/{{X-Men}} Kitty Pryde]] now goes by a different name, as she got ''very tired'' of the Shadowcat fanboys.

** 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]].

* ''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.

* In the John Updike novel ''Literature/BechIsBack'', the main character is a writer, and his wife complains that he is (unconsciously?) mining her for material. -->'''Bea:''' —I've felt myself in your mind, being di''ges''ted, becoming a ''char''acter.

* Music/{{Drake}}'s habit of calling out his former flames, complete with first names, locations, and voicemail recordings, has started catching up to them (and increasingly him) as he becomes a superstar.

Muse Abuse occurs when artists exploit their real life and the people in it for the sake of their art, often to the serious detriment of the people around them and their relationships to other people in general. Related to TheMuse, but more general—it's not just how the artist treats a particular other or others, but can spread through their entire life. Also, if really unlucky, they get alienated from themselves and their own experiences this way (see the example from NeilGaiman in the "Quotes" section).

* The {{documentary}} {{Marwencol}} is all about this trope. After suffering memory loss after an attack, Mark Hogancamp starts building a 1/6-scale WorldWarII-era town in his yard and populating it with dolls representing [[AuthorAvatar himself]], [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed his friends]], and even his attackers. He rehabilitates his physical wounds by manipulating the small dolls and props — and his mental ones by having the figures act out various battles and stories. When Mark begins documenting his miniature dramas with his camera, his photos are discovered and published by Esopus magazine and even shown in a New York art gallery.
