I was practicing composing in an SATB setting. I had the chords voiced the way I wanted to, but there was not much rhythmic interest (everything in whole notes). So, I began subdividing the notes here and there, using neighboring tones, passing tones, repeated triad tones etc. I kept in mind some basic rules from counterpoint about the do's and donts of this practice. Before I knew it, however, I realized that (for moments here and there) the voicing of the chords I diligently chose are disregarded. "This triad doesn't have a root for half the measure!" "This triad just lost it's third!" "Oh no! Did I just double the fifth?" Things got out of hand very quickly. What is the relationship between voice leading and counterpoint? Are well-constructed (according to "the textbook") compositions expected to follow the rules of both frameworks simultaneously?
