Writer’s Block is EVIL

So I’m supposed to be working on an assignment for my creative writing class.  Problem is, I’m completely blocked.  I can’t seem to get my mind to focus and see the future of the plot.  I don’t know if this is because it’s just a writer’s block, or because I’m not in the proper frame of mind for the end goal of the story.  They say “write what you know.”  Who these ‘they’ are, I have no idea, but it’s said.  Problem is right now I don’t know the ending of the story, how it should happen, how the protagonist will feel.

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a secret Wizarding world, and vampires don’t exist.  Which makes me wonder how L. J. Smith, J. K. Rowling, and the other writers of those such genres fare.  Perhaps it’s because they’re so metaphorical, but I’m not sure if that’d make them harder to write with so much open to interpretation.

Anyway, I guess I’ll go do something to try and break this block now.  This was supposed to help according to some website, but I’m less sure about that.

P.S. – Um, is Funny or Die only funny to people who are in some altered state, ie. high or drunk? Because I’m not really seeing it.
