My problem is simple to explain, yet I think it's hard to actually solve. Basically, I picture a scene in my head with characters having the feelings they're supposed to have at the moment. However, when it comes to translating the scene into words, I sometimes feel that my vocabulary fails me a little. I know what feeling the character is having, I just have difficulty finding the right word for it and, in the end, I end up using something that is close to what I really mean in the text, yet it's not *the* word. Which is funny because my vocabulary (at least in my native language, which is not English) is by no means bad! Maybe I'm trying too hard to find a word for something which can't be conveyed by words? An issue related to this is that sometimes I fear I may sound too repetitive by overusing certain words. This fear was imprinted on me by a language teacher who often told me to avoid repetition, and it stuck. Now I keep controlling myself not to repeat the use of a word too many times, but sometimes you just have to, and I feel bothered by it. Should it be a big concern for me?
