Is there a way for me to have multiple, seperate options that have the same name?

For example, earlier on in the story, I gave the reader the option to [[Look around]]. But, later on, I wanted to give them that same option. But, when I type [[Look around]] in the later point, it just brings me back to the first page. What do I do?

You can have text that is different from the passage name, so you could do things like:

[[Look around->kitchen detail]]
[[Look around->living room detail]]

You can also have the arrows pointing the other way (passage name first, then text).  Have a look at the Harlowe documentation for links...

Does that solve your problem, or is it more complicated than that?

I can't currently check, but I'm pretty sure this does it. Thanks for the help!

JoshGrams' solution works, but you could also use the (link:) macro.
