Rhythmic Offset of Key Motifs

In order to keep a composition interesting, try to rhythmically offset your motif now and then. If you’re melodic idea is based on a motivic idea being placed on every downbeat of a bar, try moving that motif to a different rhythmical point within the bar. By that procedure, you still keep the strong structural element of your motif but avoid to become too static with it.
