It’s going to be okay.
You’re never the best writer in the room.
Turn it in. Even if it’s not perfect.
Submit your work!
Let your work rest and don’t give up on it.
No really: submit your work!
Savor the moment.
Go to college wherever you want to go to college.
Focus on writing and making memories.
Write what you want to write.
Make emotional connections.
Yes, inspiration happens but the best writing is refined and polished over time.
(Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.)
