you can do a few things:
scour freshmeat or the net for something not in Debian
find something in Debian that has not been updated lately and update it
read the BTS, fix a bug or three on something you use or know about
mail a developer of a package you might want and just ask for it
read the debian-devel list, people orphan packages there fairly often
