Try a Few for Size
I always found it best to not only write all the time, but write as a multitude of characters.
Treat writing as a buffet; one day try writing from a sarcastic characters point of view, and the next, see what it's like to be a fairly dry one.
If you want to be a serious writer, you can't plan on just writing one book, or one series, right? And you never expect your favorite author to have cookie cutter heroes/heroines, right? And besides, when learning how other characters, it makes your own character that much more specific, and helps your technique.
If you just take 5 or 10 minutes a day, writing one page, or just one paragraph of a random person in a random problem, it makes writing that much easier.
