Feeling inspired but don't know where to start.

I have been feeling inspired to write since watching the PBS special about Louisa May Alcott and her life yesterday. I want to write but can't seem to get the right inspiration to light a fire under my butt. I want to write. I know that I have I have so much inside of me, but I just can't seem to figure out a way to get it out.
Dan also rented on demand the movie "Julie and Julia" for me a little bit earlier and I enjoyed it immensely. The only part that seemed to bother me though was in the end where Julie is told that Julia Child did not appreciate her blog. Julie was a writer who could not get a book published. The experience of cooking her way through Julia Child's French cookbook got her a book deal. So, she had gotten what she had wanted.
I realized that maybe that was what I had needed was to start a blog and just free write. I love to read books so, I will write about that. In the upcoming semester in college I will be taking a Shakespeare class. That will subject me to some works I'm sure that I have not read yet. Hopefully it will help me to be more well versed in Shakespeare and a better English major.
I am a Twilight reader, but have never read the books more than once. After reading Stephenie Meyer's book The Host I could not get back into the Twilight books again. I do enjoy Jane Austen and quite a few other authors though. My favorite Shakespearean play thus so far is "Much Ado about nothing". My favorite Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice of course. My husband recently bought me a copy of Shakespeare's complete works for christmas and I plan to read Much ado about nothing, and later on A Comedy of Errors when I get the chance. I saw it in play form once at a younger age and quite enjoyed it.
I think what I will do is read some everyday and then try to write on it. Or, I could also write on what I am doing in my classes for school, (everyone needs to vent about their teachers or schoolwork at one time or another.) Other than that I think that I am done for the night. Happy New Year everyone!
