* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' creator Creator/MasashiKishimoto [[http://www.shonengamez.com/2013/12/22/kishimoto-naruto-will-end-2014/ stated]] that he'd made Madara Uchiha too overpowered and had no clue how to beat him. Eventually he came to a solution: having him be [[spoiler:stabbed in the back by a GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere]].

Added DiffLines:

* The writer of Fanfic/{{Intercom}} has stated that when they first started the fic, she was just interested in getting down on paper a fic where Riley could hear her emotions before anyone else so she wouldn't feel overshadowed in the process. InsideOut hadn't even been released when she started it! Thankfully, by the time chapter 3 was released, the author had seen Inside Out, and thus began "fine tuning" her universe so as to better match up with the movie, and to eventually have a planned ending in mind (or so she claims). Funny enough, one WMG on her tvtropes page accuses her of not actually being in control of the story, but instead relying on fans to do the work for her, which is what this trope is almost about. Then again, since every 3rd WMG, reviewer comment and headscratcher ends up used or addressed in story, it's quite possible that this trope is still in effect, and we just have a case of a LyingCreator.
** On another note, the author admitted that some of the experiences in Imagination Land were taken from fan suggestions, and that the term for Riley's [[spoiler: Unique white tinged memories that she creates]] were taken from a fan's musings on their meaning.

* The ''{{Franchise/BIONICLE}}'' serials are apparently written like this, although the main plot is carefully planned out years in advance. The serials tend to cover the lesser-known characters and don't affect the main story much, so they are able to have this sort of freedom.

* BenFolds is prone to improvising an entire song in concert whenever a fan tells him to ''[[CreatorInJoke ROCK THIS BITCH!]]'' Awesome enough, but then the new tour has Y Music, a classical group, accompanying him, taking it to [[UpToEleven a whole 'nother level of awesomeness.]]

* Speaking of which: ''SaturdayNightLive'' is well-known for this as well, particularly in regards to its earlier years, being broadcast live and all. Most famously, sometimes writers would hide under the "Weekend Update" desk and hand new jokes to ChevyChase on the air.

* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'':
** Although this story generally has a good deal of planning by fanfic standards, the author will sometimes run with spur of the moment ideas, especially in ancillary scenes. Bridgette’s dream sequence [[note]][[AscendedFanon based on a reviewer’s comment]][[/note]], the makeover scene before the camping challenge and the dancing at the boot camp party are acknowledged examples of elaborate scenes with little or no planning.
** Scenes added for the purpose of error correction have little planning, due to the time constraints which necessitate such scenes in the first place. The author has acknowledged two notable examples:
*** In the first Boney Island challenge, [[TheHost Chris]] was meant to warn the contestants during the challenge briefing (as per canon) that a {{curse}} would befall anyone who took anything from the IndianBurialGround located there. For whatever reason, the author forgot to include that bit, and didn't discover the oversight until well after posting the chapter. Rather than go back and [[OrwellianRetcon quietly revise the scene]], the author wrote a scene for the following chapter wherein one contestant who happens to know the legend warns another who has innocently picked up an artifact from the area. This approach gave the reader the same information as the intended scene, and had the benefit of giving the resident MotorMouth another “mind dump” monologue.
*** The dancing at the boot camp party was an elaborate scene added at the 11th hour, so naturally at the 59th minute the author discovered a serious problem with it, namely what the scene [[KissingUnderTheInfluence made Tyler do behind his new girlfriend's back]]. A hasty repair job ensued, resulting in the "damage control" discussion the next day and the scene on the Boat of Losers with [[VotedOffTheIsland the eliminated player]] and the interns engaged to implement the damage control plan.
