DesignDocs are easy.

I've written two business plans this year and are in the process of writing a third. That's hard from a standpoint of market research.[/b]

Business plans are not like design docs. :P

There's a specific structure and style to them.
Capture the Dude is probably one of the worst games ever made, but its design document is referenced as one of the best:

Always a great reference for design docs.
