One problem I struggle with when writing, though I seldom attempt to write anything, is my inability to shape the contents of my work without revising or attending to phrasing as I write the first draft of it. For often I think this: if the thoughts can be clothed in the rhythm I want, they must be of such a nature that the rhythm will result or at least be more likely to occur with the right choice of words. And so, despite the unlikely-hood that any such nature is intrinsic to the thoughts I wish to write, or any thought at all, I feel constrained to perfect the rhythm while I write the first draft. This causes me, when attempting more complex sentence structures, to come short of getting anything expressed in full before I have almost half-perfected the rhythm of a single clause. Furthermore, due to this habit, I cannot seem to invent the material for my work, because that would require me to neglect the phrasing and order of my thoughts for the time being. This problem seems to prevail as an issue mostly when my mind is focused on rhythm. for when I write in a plain style, the wording does not come to me with difficulty, for such a style does not seem to require much attention to rhythm, but has a rhythm that comes most naturally from the words that express what the writer wishes to say. Nevertheless, though it is good for one to write this way, I cannot help but be intrigued by certain kinds of rhythm that I want to use in my writing. For this reason I must find a solution to my problem, which will enable me to form the material for my work, not thinking it to be impossible to revise my words for rhythm. Please help.
