Is excessive alliteration a sign you suffer from tunnel vision ?

One of my limitations is that my memory retrieval will sometimes become weaker when I’m too preoccupied with processing my conscious thoughts.

Like when I’m meditating or analyzing and reflecting, I find it much harder to retrieve ideas that are in my unconscious or subconscious mind. 

A friend pointed out in poetry class this week that I used 5 words with Cs in a sentence, 4 started with the letter C and another had 2 Cs in the middle of the word and she said I seemed to have a habit of using mnemonics and phonetic association in my literary compilations.

I seem to have difficulty seeing the big picture while developing the details that build the grand scheme and than, I rely on mechanical linguistic structures to compensate for my failure to produce semantic value and logical directness in my expression and innovation of ideas. 

Is this an intellectual or cognitive issue?

    About getting ideas from the subconscious, you can't force it. It just happens, often when you least expect it. Relaxation helps. Some people get ideas going for walks, lying and closing their eyes, or taking a shower.
