I basically echo Marcus's suggestions. I think that it is especially important to find ways to tie your teaching to your research interests (a former distinguished prof at my institution calls this "co-inherence" - write what you teach and teach what you write). You will probably have to be creative, but as Marcus says, the more excited you are about what you teach the better. You might even consider working on a pedagogical piece for Teaching Philosophy or Teaching Ethics. I have also found my writing group to be incredibly useful, and it doesn't have to be with other philosophers. If there are other young humanists and perhaps even social scientists at your institution, see if any of them might be interested in a writing group. Just having the accountability and fellowship is quite helpful, even if you don't get great feedback (but you might be surprised at the feedback!).
