I need a character to do a series of actions, one after another and I need the reader to be aware of them. Nothing super long, just 4~5 sentences. But whenever I write it, every sentence turns out as some form of "Grimacing, she leant over the counter.... She took a quick look around and... Picking it up , she sighed...." Basically the same sentence structure but rearranged. Is this a problem readers will notice or am I just psyching myself out? If it is how do I fix it?
Sorry if this is a really basic question, I'm not quite sure what I'm doing.
