Something has been bothering me while writing my novel Agija of Agukas. I don't like using a character's name too often, or more than once in a paragraph, and especially not more than once in a sentence. But it seems like if I use pronouns it gets confusing. Here is an example. After they had left Jod’s, Bharita pulled the large hood over his head, exited the shadows of the alley, and entered the busy sidewalk. A busy Gorn pushed by and bumped into him, but he paid it no attention. Bharita has to be in the first sentence because it is the beginning of a scene. Isn't the pronoun he in the last part of the sentence confusing? Do I have to change it to Bharita? But Bharita paid it no attention. Or would it be better as, but he paid the Gorn no attention. Then I am repeating nouns a lot. Is there an easy way around this sort of thing? I run into it a lot. Thanks, in advance.
