Damn Writer's Block

Well, they say writing in a journal or diary is a good way
to get out of the dreaded WB, so what the hell, I'll give it
a try. It's really frustrating; instead of the words I want
dripping easily from my fingertips without my even having to
think, I have to squeee-eee-eee-eeeze them out, and even
then they're dull and flat and lifeless and...well, gross.
Another problem is that I can't think of anything to write
about. Sure, there are the thousands (well, perhaps not
literally) of stories that I need to finish or write sequels
to, but I haven't any ideas for them. What I really want to
do is talk to my friends, but we're on winter holiday right
now, and I won't see them 'til tomorrow at school...oh,
wait, Bible Study is tonight, so I'll see Beth and Drew and
hopefully Christy and Rachael, but...I don't know. Arg! I
want to create! I want to make something beautiful. I
can't draw, or paint, or sculpt, or anything physical like
that, but I can twist words to be alive, or usually. This
is frustrating.
