Writing - Spy stories

Spy stories

In the past many spies were swash buckling heroes often fighting in
hand-to-hand combat. Today's spies are more hi-tech. Use the information in
this animation as the basis of a spy story.

Readers of good spy stories love a good "who done it?" Like mysteries, spy
stories involve secrets. Spies live dangerous lives; they assume
identities, have secret lives, secret names, steal secrets, work for secret
organisations, save nations from imminent disasters, and protect the world
from evil!

When writing spy stories the writer needs to create mysterious characters
in equally mysterious circumstances. To write spy stories writers need to:
imagine they are spies, create ruthless enemies and make careful
observations of people and their motives. The world's most famous spy is
James Bond, sometimes known by his code name 007!
