Yes. Start coding some of your own stuff. You'll find all new questions 
(and answers) when you do.

Think about some project you'd really like to have automated. Then think 
about the following questions:

What would you get from it? What kind of output would you want? What 
kind of input (one time, maintenance, adding, deleting)would you want to 
do? Do you want gui or commandline? Would you want it to work 
crossplatform? Or just on one machine?

If you've got those answered (at least a start of the answer), then you 
can start working on the project itself...
