Enriching your communication with sound bites

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines a sound bite as a short sentence or phrase that is easy to remember, often included in a speech made by a politician and repeated in newspapers. Sound bites are riveting and when used correctly, they will spice up your writing and speech.

Regardless of whether you write fiction or nonfiction, for a blog or a newspaper article, for children or adults, there’s a difference between good writing and great writing.

Using sound bites will help you engage the mind and elevate the spirits of your reader or audience. An article by Forbes gives you ideas on how to communicate in a way that not only educates and entertains, but also inspires.
