I'm trying to get my prose to flow as smoothly as possible in a certain style. But I've been running into a little trouble. Sometimes it doesn't always seem to flow that smoothly. I want it to be perfect. I know that just like poetry, prose has something like meter (feet, stress, etc.) Do you think there is anything I can do with the feet or the stress to make sure my prose flows smoothly? I seem to be having no trouble with the thoughts and stuff as long as I have an outline and know what I want to write, but I am having some trouble with the rhythm and flow of the words. I want it to be smooth, harmonious, rhythmic, and pitch-perfect. This is important to me because I think writing should flow perfectly. I think it is one of the most important qualities of prose, one that makes it fun to read. Does anyone know anything about prosody in prose? I've been researching this and I can't find that much useful information. All I know is that there are feet and accented and unaccented syllables. I'm not quite sure what to do with them. I have gotten pretty far messing around with them but sometimes I get stuck. Sometimes I write a sentence while writing the feet at the same time. Sometimes I rewrite the sentence based on what my ear says sounds good. Either way, I am using my ear. But if I had some guiding principles, that would be great, because it's not always easy to imagine the type of rhythms that I like. Some rhythms are unsatisfactory; some are staccato. But I want a smooth, harmonious rhythm.
