This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.
I am having trouble making sense of rhythm. The whole rhythm thing is confusing. How do you decide what the rhythm of a word is? I was looking at some of the words from the little lexicon at the back of Mounce (good ole Mounce) and this is what I came up with:
u -- u
u u --
u u -- u
-- u u
u u-- --
Now, I understand things can change when put into context, but am I on the right path? Are there any places to go for some good information? Then how does one decide what words to use? Sorry for all these questions.
