I finally achieved something.
Hers Truly is getting more aggressive about not going to bed at bedtime. She is most definitely pushing that boundary. She left her room while I was trying to put her to bed. I said that I would pick her up and take her back if she did this, and I did, much to her sorrow.
Hers Truly has been waking up earlier as the sun has come up earlier. I now see her around 6:45. If she gets much earlier, she hits my writing time. Fortunately, she is now easier to take care of. She helps make her own breakfast, or she'll just sit down at the table and expect breakfast served to her. This is a huge difference compared to the ravenous beast of last year, who was only appeased by ready bowls of oatmeal.
