There are a few online “fortune cookie generators” (like this one: that can actually act as good writing prompts/jumping-off points. Like horoscopes, fortune cookie messages are normally purposefully vague so they can be open for interpretation, whether the fortune is more like a prediction or just a proverb. Use a random fortune cookie generator to write a short narrative. This narrative can be related to the spy theme or not. For example, “Financial prosperity is coming your way!” or “The time is right to make new friends” can be used together or separately to make for an interesting narrative. E.g., as a spy, you might need to cozy up to a rich new friend and come into some money yourself as a way to break into a secret society. Be creative!
