In answer to a question on another site, one user said that there exist writers who are arrhythmic, writers who hear no rhythm in their minds when either drafting or polishing. According to them, these kind of writers can never create prose with rhythm, for there exists no set of rules able to produce it, and therefore without a rhythmic sense, they have no way to yield it. As for me, I have times when I am more rhythmical then others, and several years ago I wrote one work of prose with perfect rhythm. But many times I find myself lacking a sense of the kind of rhythm I want to produce. But the idea that not any rules exist that you can use to generate rhythm, with that I must disagree, for though it would be counterproductive to plan out rhythm according to rules, yet nonetheless there are certain rules able to help you avoid unpleasant rhythms. But I have yet to fully discover such rules. But what do you think? Are there rhythmic and arrhythmic writers? Or do all writers have a sense of rhythm which they can develop?
