It's about relaying a full experience, not snatches or drips of it, but the whole experience through the grit of work. One must then relate the whole to the audience through familiar settings, emotions or what have you.

This isn't a talent or a birth right, an ability born with baby attached, consumable by the human mass. This is hard work and grind around the clock.
