You usually can make the ink flow again in a ballpoint pen by carefully applying heat to the metal tip.

Try holding it briefly over an open flame and then writing with it.

Hold under a very hot water tap. This will also work if the ink has congealed. Pour the hot water over the entire cartridge.

Spary some hairspray on a piece of paper then doodle in the spray and then roll the ball around the paper, it should come unstuck.
