* ''Literature/NothingsFairInFifthGrade'' was writen by Barthe Declements while she was an elementary school teacher, and a school psychologist. The result is one of the most realistic depictions of fifth grade (and under) kids both in AND out of school.

* One plotline in ''ComicBook/SwampThing'' involves Liz Tremayne, formerly an IntrepidReporter and novelist who befriended Swamp Thing and the gang while doing some investigative reporting on the enigmatic creature, becoming a paranoid, dependent, and cloistered shell of her former self as a result of her boyfriend Dennis Barclay using the specter of them supposedly being constantly chased by one of their enemies (who had actually been killed by Swamp Thing in the issue immediately following their initial flight) to gradually make her utterly reliant on him. Creator/AlanMoore based this arc on one of his own cousins who went through a similar experience with her husband, and many of the specific details of Liz's plight (wearing sown-up towels instead of proper new underwear, never immersing herself in a bath for fear of drowning, never plugging in the TV for fear of electrocution) are almost exactly the same as those of the cousin.

* A song by Music/MitchBenn claims, amongst other things, that Creator/JKRowling can do magic, Creator/IanFleming is a superspy, and Creator/DickFrancis is a horse, before concluding "And [[YouDoNotWantToKnow you don't want to know]] the truth about Creator/StephenKing".

* Creator/KevinSmith has stated this as the reason for him becoming a filmmaker. Specifically, ''Film/{{Clerks}}'' is actually set and shot in the store than Smith worked in. ''Film/ZackAndMiriMakeAPorno'' borrows heavily from his experience making ''Film/{{Clerks}}''; shooting in your workplace after hours, using a hockey stick as a boom mic pole etc.

* This isn't really about plot, but deserves a mention. When Bethesda Studios took over the production of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', they based it in Washington, DC. Their studios used to be based in a suburb of Washington, DC called Bethesda, Maryland (yes, we know, not a very creative name). This is why the landscape in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' is so detailed: the developers know the area. Gamers who live in the DC metro area noticed and praised Bethesda for it. Of course, the player can also explore a (fictionalized) version of the Bethesda Studios offices in the game.

* The sense of anxious dread and the intense physical and emotional distress that comes from it in ''[[VideoGame/ChzoMythos Trilby's Notes]]'' is so compelling and accurate because the game's creator, [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]], suffers heavily from anxiety himself. He's made several comments to the effect of how anxiety and the resulting effect on fear affects him. It also explains Trilby's convincing social confidence tactics; Yahtzee himself does something very similar in social events by keeping people at a comfortable distance with his public persona, reserving more of his self-described neurotic behavior for private spaces with friends, or sometimes letting it slip through when interacting with [[VitriolicBestBuds Gabe]] on ''LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut''.
