Specific and general narratives.
I'm experimenting with narratives. I'm using George Renko's Intensive Course Tactics II masterlevel checkmates. It takes about 10 minutes per problem to find the solution. I can't resist to find those myself. Then it takes about half an hour to construct a narrative that describes what is going on in this specific position. Then I try to generalize the idea's. But it becomes evident that I don't know how to do that yet. So for now I'm doing 10-20 problems to get the hang of constructing specific narratives, then I'm going to do them again in order to find out how to generalize specific narratives. I can imagine that this can work out great.
