How do you keep yourself from being to repetitive? For example, in about forty thousand words, I have used the word "gaze" nearly thirty times. In a 90k-100k novel, what should the limit be in terms of repeating words? Should I limit the number of times I use a certain word/phrase five times in a 90k novel? Besides the words "I", "She", "He" "and", of course. I don't want to have to use a thesaurus, but I might have to!
