Re: sentence fragments

Kevin, SLC Writing Tutor
Sentence fragments should be used very sparingly, if at all.

I personally only use them for emphasis since their shortness implies importance. There is always some stylization in writing, basically allowing a writer to write as they want, but we still must keep within grammatical rules if anything is to make sense.
