“First when there’s nothing
But a slow-glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide
Deep inside your mind…”
Lyrics from “What a Feeling,” by Irene Cara
In Episode 6 of No Songs for Men, we pick up with Roxanne feeling her fears deep down inside as she dreams of auditioning for the all girl alternative rock band Code Cherry. Come along for the boat ride as Steve and Roxanne join the party in Put-in-Bay and Roxanne gets another chance to meet the Code Cherry girls before her big audition.
Will she let her stage fright get the best of her? Will she employ the yoga breathing techniques that Amanda teaches her? Does Steve still think she’s a hooker? You’ll just have to read Episode 6 and find out!
A Note from Maria
I know, I know, it has been way too long since the last episode, and if any of you out there are still reading the Web series, I just want to say…THANK YOU for your patience and continuing support!
It has been a crazy few months at MariaMedia, with the launch of The Daily Downward Dog and many freelance assignments that have kept me from dedicating time to writing No Songs for Men.
If you are enjoying No Songs for Men, I’d really like to hear from you, because your encouragement helps bring the Code Cherry girls to life and lights a fire under my ass to keep the series coming. Seriously, I need to hear from you if you want to keep these episodes coming!
