Sort of like lucid dreaming while you write? Almost like there is a muse right next to you whispering sharp changes in direction that once you hear it, seem perfect and natural to the story?
Yes, I have had that happen. I tend to write long stories that take days or weeks to write. Sometimes I only get in a few paragraphs at a time until I am done and not look at it for a day or two. I am working on one I hope to get on the Wizards Lair some time in the next couple weeks like that. I had a very clear idea of what the story was about, where it was going and how it would end, but it has changed at least twice and now is shaping up quite different in ways I at least find far more interesting.
This hasn't happened much on shorter stories like the chapters I post here from time to time. Usually there are inputs from other contributors that changes the shape of my vision but I could see it happening from time to time.
