Do they come from the bowels of your imagination or are they driven by the real world? Mine are imagination/bowels but I'm gonna put up one next time that's driven by a real world event.
 
I have a big Phrases and Prompts master Google Doc where I collect snippets that sound cool...my goal is that every prompt suggestion I give is like a two- or three-word poem. It should sound beautiful or fascinating or arresting in and of itself, even if it doesn't get voted in. Sometimes things just "come to me." Other times I consider a type of story I would like to write, than think of a phrase that would "go with" that story so that I can write it if it gets voted in. Often I pull from lyrics or song titles or my own story/poem worlds.

Hah I have the same :) Little phrases that come by. I tried converting some of them into lyrics once (actually a few times) ... with limited success ...
