Try working on learning the scales -- the pentatonic and the major scale to start out.

To expand on what Muse said as you work the scales vary the rhtym using a metronome so start by playing them in quarter notes, then eigths, sixteenths and triplets.

Skip strings etc.

Form/ join/ audition for a band - play with others. Nobody ever came out of an audition without having learned something

Picture yourself in five years...what would you like to do as a musician? compose your own songs?...play some songs for meetings only? ..or in a pub?..would you like to play funk? jazz? metal?...maybe you are a radiohead fan and you would like to play their songs...the possibilities are endless...with this picture in mind start again your lessons...and above all..have fun!

You might also want to practice strumming patterns.

Along with any theory you want to learn, technique and different ways to play the strings may open some new doors.

As said, scales would be a nice thing to get on with. Then there would be arpeggios, building your technical abilities etc etc. And as much as I dislike it myself, learning a bit of theory for a couple of minutes each day could prove to be very helpful.

There's a little something written about "expansion" on "Wiki Guitar". I don't know if it'll help, but it's worth a read: http://www.wikiguitar.net/index.php?title=Lesson_3:Expansion

Play with others, play with others, play with others, and then find some more people to play with. I cannot stress enough how much playing with other people can and will help your own playing.
