My first article placed 3rd in the beginner's category. (Beginner's luck?) Anyway, was I supposed to move up after that? I didn't, as I thought I had to win 1st place or EC.
So far I've submitted four articles, all in the beginners. I hope that's okay. I don't mind moving up, it's just that I didn't think I was supposed to.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3: 5-6
