    You should do something that meshes with your own interests. Or you could create a game.

    Here are some projects I've written over the years:
    Search through ASCII text files (eg .java, .html, .txt) in a directory and sub directory for files containing String(s) and build a html page with links to the files containing the String(s) and open a browser with that page to allow user to view the files.
    Also write a program that can read that html file with links, display it in a JEditorPane, catch a click on one of the links and execute a special program to open that file for processing instead of using the browser.
    Examples of usage:
    Open bridge playing program after searching saved hands for selected types of play
    Open my java source editing program for .java files that used a specific class

    A SystemTray program that provides a list of texts that allows a user to select one and have the text copied to the clipboard. I have dozens of canned responses for forum questions in this list. Right click, select and I can paste the response.

    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    A project idea generator so that we don't need to answer these types of questions anymore. ;-)

    I wouldn't kid yourself in that department, you have to be very good to make something that people want to buy. If you want to go down this path then you're not at the application phase yet for a long time, because first you need to figure out a market you want to target and then within that market you'll have to conduct interviews with people/companies to see what they want so you can make something that has a chance of selling. Creating a product that YOU like and getting people to want it is damn near impossible without bucket loads of money to spend on marketing, like Microsoft has.

    So no, I'd focus on something that you REALLY want to do; that is important because then you'll have a chance of actually finishing it in stead of starting it and then being distracted by the next fun idea that comes along on your path. I'm describing myself there, not you. I know how easy it is to not finish something. Given that: spill the beans. Who are you? What do you like? What is your passion?
