Well, or talking about it experientially rather than in a way that's geared to explain it to people who don't build characters in their head. Or a certain privileging of the Romantic point of view on the arts, where the more inaccessible and ephemeral your process is, the more you can set up a sense of privileged status as an artist.
Which...well. Let's just say I think it's a lot of things? :)
