I can't write fanfic anymore

At some point over the last few months, it seems that my muse just disappeared. I don't know if it's because my shows got less slashy or because something changed in my head. I am not taking any antidepressants, which sometimes harm my creativity.

A few years ago, after Due South went off the air, SPACE stopped showing repeats of 1970s Battlestar Galactica and SPIKE TV or whatever the Nashville/National network was called at the time stopped showing repeats of Starsky and Hutch (and I started going to work every day so I couldn't stay home and watch them anyway), I stopped writing fanfic. Then I started watching new-style Hawaii Five-0 and White Collar and Suits, and suddenly I was writing again. Then I got fed up of White Collar seeming to constantly mess up the Neal/Peter relationship, and in Suits Mike stopped working for Harvey, and in Five-0 they added half a dozen new characters and made Steve's girlfriend a regular, and suddenly Steve and Danny had maybe 30 seconds of screen time per episode. Last season didn't even have a hug.

Every so often these days I get a sudden impulse to do something creative, and I can't find anything. I have no muse for writing fanfic, and I lost the password for my WordPress blog so I can't write anything there (I've tried to recover it, but so far WordPress isn't cooperating.) I don't do any needlework or crochet or knitting due to fine motor skills issues, and I don't do any form of visual art. I get very bored on days like today when it's raining outside so I can't go geocaching. I am getting a lot of reading done, but sometimes I would like to do something a little less passive.
