Here's a sentence I just wrote:
The Chief was embroiled with passion in his work.
Luckily I immediately looked up the word. To my dismay, I had a completely wrong understanding of the word "embroiled". I thought it was a fancy word for something like "suddenly filled with something that was generated internally".
I looked up synonyms for "filled" but didn't find anything that matched that definition I want. Is there any single word or small phrase that denotes what I'm looking for? Something that just now was filled or filling into a person (the Chief). That's the adjectival definition I want.
I believe I got my misconception of "embroiled" from the words "embodied" and/or "imbued". I don't know where I got the "just now" or "suddenly" part from, but that's part of the meaning I want too.
