I don't need a snooze button...

...because I have Dixie.

See sometimes I get up right away--as soon as my alarm goes off at 4:26. But other mornings, I'm slow to wake up so Dixie helps me. Mostly she peers into my face and meows to remind me that though she's waited very patiently throughout the night, it's time for me to get my lazy self out of bed and make sure that her food bowl is filled to an adequate level. If the meowing alone doesn't do it, she's been known to sit on my chest and meow right in my ear until I respond.

It's annoying and cute (if you're a cat person) and certainly effective.

And to update, the editing is progressing slowly but steadily. I'm glad to be doing it, however. The story is becoming tighter and more focused and that will only help once I return to query land.

I'm impressed that you get up that early! My hubby gets up at 4:45 so he can work out before work but no thank you. Aiden is my alarm clock and he usually has me up around 6:30.

Yay! I'm looking forward to seeing it!

Your cat has a beautiful tail.
