I know it's not a direct sequel. But people are saying it take place after The Writer. How is that possible? Don't want to spoil the ending of The Writer.

Did I find a manuscript that mentioned American Nightmare taking place

2 years after Alice was released from Couldron Lake? or at least referring to a time where 2 years had passed since.

Yes, this takes place that long after the first Alan Wake. There are mentions of what other characters have been doing since.
