First, check to see if the front wheels are turned in either direction and have exrternal pressure on them; such as resting against the curb. If that's the case, then your problem is that the wheels (and steering wheel) are under pressure and you need to counter-act that pressure in order to turn the ignition lock. So make a note of the direction of the front wheels....you'll need to muscle the steering wheel in the opposite direction. So do this....with the key in the ignition, take your left hand and try to turn the wheel in the opposirte direction that the wheels are turned. At the same time, take your right hand and try to turn the ignition lock. If the front wheels are under a great deal of pressure, it may take some muscle to turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction, but all you need is a small amount to release the pressure on the ignition lock abnd allow you to turn the key. Try it. Good luck.

It sounds like your ignition lock cylinder has a problem. These can be replaced and keyed to match you present key by a locksmith. Call a locksmith for a estimate.

Is your steering wheel locked? Turn the key as much as you can, then turn the steering wheel and see if it releases the lock. You should be able to completely turn the key after this.
