Help me release my creativity. I can't draw when I want to!

My work notebooks are covered in doodles, illustrations, and sketches. Likewise any pad that I use when in a meeting, on a conference call, or when I am using my brain for something else. (possibly relevant: my recall of meetings and calls is as strong or stronger when I am drawing versus when I have no pen).
However, when I sit down to draw - making time with clean paper, a good pen, and good light - nada. I lock up and all my ideas that come forth unbidden when I'm "busy" are not to be found!
Am I alone in this? (Is there a name for it?) How can I relax and get the stuff flowing when I want to?
please do not suggest illegal mind altering substances. Anything more than a whiskey sour is not for me. Thanks!
