I'm in the exact same situation as you are. I'm an aspiring writer, but I don't really have any concept of how to turn that into a tangible job. However I would recommend taking a trip or a vacation or something. It doesn't have to be a backpacking-across-Europe extravaganza (though it could be), it could be as simple as a series of day trips. I just went on a road trip across the US, and getting out of my hometown helped me think about where I want to go in the future, and it gave me a different perspective on where I already was.
