Sentence fragment? Yes or no?

    I am writing a short story and the program tells me that this sentence is a fragment. Now, there are some cases where sentence fragments must be used in creative writing because of what characters say etc..

    But it says this is a sentence fragment. Julie’s eyes widened in disbelief when she saw her keys and cellphone.

    How is that a fragment? Or is the program wrong?

      That is one confused grammar program. That is a complete sentence, by every definition that I am aware of.

      Kain: I love the idea of having a grammar checker and it's helped me many times, but the same thing you mentioned has happened to me. I've gotten to the point I use the grammar checker as only a guideline. Any time you're not sure, ask about it and I'll help you.

        Thanks. I'm not sure why the program says it is a fragment. I did not think it was.

    That's not a fragment.
