Haven't you noticed that sometimes when you use your pen and still have plenty of ink, it just won't write? All you have to do is just get a lighter, or a candle, and light the tip of the pen. Make sure the ball point of the pen is in the fire for 5 seconds. That's so easy and simple.
If you are stuck with a ball point pen that won't work, try heating the metal tip to get the ink flowing. (also gently heating the tube, too.)
