I’ve been working on my business plan as a writer for the last couple of months (it’s a good idea to help you really buckle down on goals, if you aren’t sure where to start, try this series of articles).
With my business plan so in mind I thought it could be fun to think of how you could use a business plan in a story. Perhaps you have an entrepreneurial young thief and his business plan is the start of what will one day become the thieves guild. Or maybe a modern day witch wants to run a cupcake store, she makes her business plan, gets the bank loan, and starts her patisserie up, but her cupcakes keep casting spells on customers(something her business plan certainly didn’t take into account!).
How can you start your story with a business plan? Will your protagonist have missed a vital part in the plan which makes everything collapse, or will outside complications turn things on their heads?
