XNA is a good idea. Very powerful, from Microsoft, PC and Xbox 360.
Being a mildly advanced C# programmer, and much more, I would say look for small utility tools that could have there place. Here is my lil dev story to maybe inspire you to look in areas of your daily activities.
My first established application was iTunes Media Keys, since iTunes didn't do system wide hotkeys I made a small utility where the user could set any hotkey to do iTunes functions using the iTunes COM interface
My next was Chromium Updater, a small utility that would download the latest trunk release of Chromium and keep you up-to-date in the background. Good for Chromium testers.
My latest is Game Data, a medium sized application to keep track of gaming time. My whole idea was to create website to go along with it and have crowdsourced data for users to view along with profile stats they could share with their friends, badges, etc.
I made a TON of other smaller random programs over my 7 year, self taught journey. These are the biggest. When you do something, do it right. Make sure you take the time to learn everything you have questions about. Which is really easy since all this information and so much more is shared so freely.Edited by logicPwn - 10/9/12 at 1:04pm
