As always keep the alternate picking rhythmical and count in groups of four 16th notes called “Tetrachords”. Or, count in the Indian   Konokol rhythm system “Ta Ka Di Me”. Accent the first beat of each 4 note grouping with the guitar pick.

This will give your alternate picking consistency and fluidity because you will know where you are in the bar or the rhythmic cycle, for instance as in Teen Taal.
