Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a medium. Or check out some frameworks that are new to you.
As most people who know me know, I am a fan of SG-1. Just about everything I read and write is Sam/Janet centric, with very few exceptions. And even those exceptions are still Janet centric. However, not that long ago, in one of Stargate comms, someone asked for help in finding a long lost fic that was a Jack and Daniel centric story. The synopsis they gave sounded very intriguing, so today, when the fic was located by someone, I sat down and read it.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the story. I thought it did good job of showing the men in character and the strength of their friendship. I'm glad I took a step outside my normal fare and that it paid off so well in this case. :)
