Email to me:
I was doing some research and came across your article at Query Questions: Business Plans for a Novel?
I read it, found it extremely helpful and think it’s a great resource - thank you!
I have another page you might want to consider adding to your page:
(link to emailer's page, which is NOT a place you want to be)
It’s the results of over 20 years of my firm creating business plans for thousands of companies.
Anyways, I just wanted to say hello and thanks for the awesome resource!
If you don't want to click the link and read the post, the closing line is what you need to get the joke:
I have no idea why an agent would ask for a business plan unless they literally did not know what one was.

Tip of the Day
This thing is gonna end.
Not soon enough, and certainly not without some godawful fallout.
But it will end.
Will you be ready?
The time is now to work on the things that don't require an agent on your team.
Get a website.
Find good comps.
Find more comps.
Reach out to writers and make friends.
Promo OTHER WRITERS BOOKS.
Keep a list of effective promotions that you see other people doing.
There's a lot you can do when you can't write.
And you're going to want to be ready when the world goes back to work.
Fending off angst at 3am:
The Great British Baking Show on Netflix.
Progress on biscuits: none.
But I made a casserole of sorts
chicken, tomatoes, pineapple, onions, and raisins. And mozzarella.
Then I added those Lipton dried fried onion things, and honestly, yum.
It looks awful on the plate, but it was pretty good.
Next time, less tomato, and maybe some curry?

We got some chicks and put them under Saunders the Buff Orpington, who had laid a single egg and gone broody. Unperturbed by one egg becoming five chicks (who looked nothing like her) overnight, she adopted them. Apparently neither math or biology are her strong suits, just like us writers!
Here, she is making her worried face at one of her 'babies' as it contemplates hurling itself out of the nest box. --Blog reader Karl Henwood
