There’s a sense in which you don’t understand anything until you concretize it.
There’s a sense in which you’re not saying anything until you concretize it.
If I say “Place”, I’m not saying much.
If I say “Victorian style home on Michigan Avenue in Chicago,” I’m saying more.
In communicating, strive for the concrete. “Climb down the ladder of abstraction,” as a wise professor of mine once quipped.
If you can’t do that, maybe you don’t know what you’re saying. And if you don’t, no one else will.
So concretize. Illustrate. Make a word picture.
Otherwise, you’re not saying. You’re just speaking.
