If you build it from your existing experiential vocabulary, it will look a lot like your experience.  If that's what you want, fine, but presumably, you're trying to change something, to go somewhere else with it.  In that case, you must start with your destination and make the picture look exactly as you wish it to be.  Do not try to write a story about how you got there.  If you knew how to get there you would have gone there a long time ago.  If you write the story from what you know, it will look exactly like what you know, like what you already have, where you already are.  You must start at the destination, paint it exactly as you wish it to be and don't give any thought to how it got that way.  Hold that in mind and let tendrils from it grow back to where you are now and pay no attention to the process, only to the desired outcome.  Focus solidly on the "what."  Let the "how and why" create and care for themselves.  See?
