I believe that Warcraft III: The Frozen throne should be mentioned in the Video Games examples. I'm a beginner, so please add the example on my behalf. In the third Sentinel mission, we have Maiev searching the Tomb of Sargeras, but as she enters, she notices orcish runes on the walls, that seem to have been created 20 years earlier by the Orc Warlock Gul'dan. Gul'dan logged his journey through the massive Tomb, giving visions of what happened to him to anyone who could read them. Maiev followed his trail until the runes seemed to fade away, and the visions stopped after logging the final moments of a beaten, dieing Gul'dan. It counts as very good apocalyptic log, Gul'dan entering confident and with an army of followers and ending up beaten, betrayed, bleeding, only a few feet away from his goal, with a demonic figure watching his slow demise and laughing at his efforts.

I think a title change might be a good idea. "Apocalyptic Log" is kinda misleading and it could make people think of something like the Book of Revelations instead of what the trope actually describes.

Maybe change to something like "Keep Writing As You Die" or "The Castle Aaagh Effect"

Despoilered the The Sound and the Fury (1929) example in the description. According to our Handling Spoilers page we don't need to spoiler a 50 year old work just because someone might not have seen it yet, and this example is 82 years old.
