Thank you very much for your insightful review. Without going into Worm itself, I admit that I have failed at coming up with ways to make Lisa struggle a bit more and have her suffer some meaningful defeats, but... well, with things as they are, I haven't found a way to make that believable and true to the characters. I really shouldn't have let her get an in with Colin that early in the story. Anyway, there are some twists coming right up that should make it so she doesn't coast so easily.
Yes. I realised, however, that all of them require major revisions, so I'm currently writing the plot outline for one of them in between life stuff. I'll do the same for all of them, and then slowly write up backlogs, so it isn't likely that I'll publish anything any time soon
