my suggestion is stay with 2-3 rhythms at a time. one rhythm for bass, one rhythm for the tenor n mid sections, and one rhythm for the treble sections. like the trebles going at 16ths, the mids with whole notes and the bass with half notes to keep things going.

have different notes and chord progressions for each rhythm and don't be too afraid of large intervals and small intervals when necessary. Also sometimes when needed play out of key, it helps set up tension and such. i would suggest basses to only have one part because more than one is hard to make not sound muddy unless in octaves.

as for writing I prefer a higher part moving quickly with underlying chord progressions and then bringing in that same quick melody to the lower instruments later in the song to provide difference but familiarity at the same time.
