NaNoWriMo writers rocket through Mars novels

Tresa Cho and Joi “SaintJoi” Weaver, two twenty-something SF fans and women writers, are rocketing through their respective Red Planet novels for National Novel Writing Month 2009.

Cho’s novel, which is entitled Of All Things Forgotten and revolves around humans on Mars, has passed the 25,000-word mark! Read an excerpt on her NaNoWriMo page, then check out her blog, Science Fiction and the Women who Love it.

SaintJoi’s yet-to-be-titled novel, which is set in the year 2052 and stars a woman named Dejah Sorenson who recovers NASA’s long-lost Phoenix Lander, has hit the 45,000-word mark! Read a huge chunk of the novel, if not all of it to date, on her blog, Dreamer of Mars.

Keep the rockets burning, Tresa and Joi!
