Writer's Block

So Company, I don't know if you have noticed but lately, the last say week or so, I have been struggling to come up with content for the almost award winning Big Dave and Company. I have been struggling a lot. I don't know what I want to write about and then once I figure it out I don't know what to write about it. So I go on and peck away until something comes out, but it has all seemed awfully pained and strained and whatever other -ained words I can think of. So I am sorry, I just don't know what to do. I know that it will pass eventually and I will come up with some sort of brilliant something, but it might be some time. So just to warn you.
All the greats say that the best way to get over your funk is to keep at it. For example, when Reggie Miller was missing threes for the Indiana Pacers in the mid-90s, all he had to do was keep on shooting and he'd find his groove. So they say it goes for the good writers: all they have to do is keep writing and eventually it will all turn around for them. But I wouldn't consider myself a good writer so I am not sure that it applies to me. What if I am tapped out? What if I never write an entertaining word again? What then? I worry about these things at night. And during the day. But mostly at night. It keeps me up, but not as much as my crazy dreams do. More on that tomorrow. I hope that will break me out of my funk.
