That swag-bags need to be stuffed with military precision. Just ask Kathy.
That power cuts just mean more time in front of warm, cosy fireplaces. Unwashed hair be damned. Well, not if it stinks... but most Canadians are too polite to say you stink anyway. So I guess, unwashed hair be damned.
That meeting Sweetopia turns you into a mumbling, blushing (yep, brown people can blush) inarticulate fangirl.
That your voice is what draws readers to you. And if they like it, keeps them with you. And occasional pictures of cookies don't hurt either.
That self-publishing no longer has the 'vanity press' tag and is positively encouraged.
That you look like an idiot when you're taking food pictures lying down on your stomach. But the pictures are so cool, and you learn so much from the lovely photographers, so who cares about a little pain? Plus, you also get to eat the cookies in the end. And banter with Julie (verily, that Julie) on Twitter after. And your husband's snickers be damned too.

That posts titled 'Ten Things About... Etc' get the best kind of engagement!!! :) :)
