How do you get your mojo back when it’s gone walk-about?

It’s 8:56pm, the kids are snuggled in bed with my hubby reading them books (yup, later than we’d like, but I was hanging’ with them tonight to make up for a couple of super-busy snuggle-lite days). Up until 24 minutes ago I was staring at a blank page, and a flashing cursor , with a side-order of Humongous To-Do List.

While I adore producing Fox in Flats and all of the awesome things that buzz around it, tonight’s one of those nights when it can be hard to get my ‘Fox’ on.

So, in a cry for help, I posted this on the Fox in Flats Facebook:


And then the Fox-community kicked in with lashing of tips and ideas:

“Play music and change your clothes.” offered Naomi

“Make a coffee and then keep having coffee!” said Corrie

“No Facebook!” exclaimed Kristin

“Coffee and ’90s Madonna.” from the chicks at Girl PR

“Music and Red Bull!” said Cath

“Hot shower, fun music & fresh clothes that suit the work.” offered Suzanne


Action stations into my favourite foxy faux fur jacket, red lipstick, and a spray of fresh perfume. I lit up my sweetest smelling candle, and then I jammed the ear-buds in and cranked my 2012 track du jour up loud!

Welcome back Kotter. Mojo is officially back in the building.”

And as I was sitting here, seat dancing, singing loud, grinning like a Cheshire, and banging away on my lappie, I felt a gentle touch on my furry shoulder. After jumping out of my bedazzled jeans, and squealing in fright I heard Mr Fox whisper: “The boys are ready for their night-time kiss.


Off to lay some ridiculously red bed-time kisses, and rip into some fox-spiration!

    a 20 minute power nap and a strong coffee and I am good to go!

    • FoxInFlats

      I’m in for another big innings tonight (such is the life of a working mum!), and snuck in a power nap just then thanks to your advice. x A

  • Naomi Ellis

    Brilliant! I also love to add a funky necklace to help me feel awesome. Glad you had a productive night! N x

    • FoxInFlats

      LOL of course, the necklace – your signature! Thanks for the fab tips x

  • Suzanne

    Oh – I forgot to mention – add your fav hair style :) Although it seems you did that too :)
    For some reason I always aim to look my most fabulous (not a very long trip) when I’m at my most tired – basic covering up I guess. But it gets me through the day (or night) of work ahead.

    • FoxInFlats

      Such a great idea. It’s amazing how a little tweak on the outside can make you feel more motivated.

  • Sonia @ Shop Me Chic

    I’m usually tapping away on the laptop in the lounge room, so I change the channel* to Channel V or MTV. The music helps me keep my eyes off the screen and gives me the energy to keep on writing!
    * Note: watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is not conducive to getting work done. It’s just too damn entertaining!

    • FoxInFlats

      LOL Real Housewives! Why am I not watching this?!

  • Chrissie

    This is just what I needed! I’ve been wanting to get back into my own writing (children’s stories, which I publish online) but work, and life and all that it entails just keep getting in the way. Time to set aside some time and get my mojo going, I think!

    • FoxInFlats

      Yes indeed – and how exciting! A friend once asked me “How much do you want it?” and that always keeps me going when I lose my mojo. Good luck! x
