Shiny New Thing
When you finish a new story or novel, it's like having a shiny new thing. You wake up in the morning knowing that you have something new, something really good that's making you feel happy. What is it? You check. "Is there a brand-new car in my garage?" you ask yourself. But no, that's not it. "Have I received a ruby-and-diamond tiara recently?" You find it's not that either. "Oh!" you say, remembering. "I have a new book (story, poem, essay, memoir, etc.). That's my shiny new thing."
