Hi all, good to be here

I am very new to writing, only started work on my first novel earlier in February this year. Two winning NaNo camps and 290K+ words later I'm still going strong with no clear end in sight.

I'm enjoying finally finding my 'thing' after forty years of drifting through life. But it's taken over my life somewhat. I was a stay at home mum of two and keen gardener. Now I have large patch of tall weeds and two feral creatures who were once my children. My husband is also rather bored of my endless nattering about my imaginary friends and what happens to them.

So, here I am in search of people who won't roll their eyes at me when I talk about anything writing related. Tips for focusing my pantsing so I can figure out where this story is going and how it ends would be gratefully received.
