These fragments are six-word stories or poems. Often working in such a limited form can rouse the imagination and spark creativity. Any of these three ideas could become a story or even a book.
The watch stopped; no one moved.
Two dogs, too many, to master.
Now, no one answers the phone.
As a prompt, try six-word stories. You may find you have a way out of the doldrums. Forms can be a creative vehicle of great power.
As I play with fragments, there are always haiku. So here is one.
We can fall over
Ourselves trying to behave
Outside who we are.
