My attitude towards writers is mostly positive. Writers have creative and imaginary minds. I think that each writer has their own uniqueness which makes them stand out when compared with others. The fact that every writer has their own way of thinking and using their brain makes things exciting. Having a positive attitude towards other writers is a good thing because it shows the writer that you are interested in their writing. Writers do learn to become even better when they get negative feedback. If I only give other writers positive feedback about their writing it brings up my own confidence and improves my writing as well. If they can do it then I can too. Knowing how good a write can get makes me strive to become a good or maybe even better writer than them.

As far as writing, my attitude is both positive and negative. I enjoy writing for many reasons. I love being able to write because it allows me to communicate and express myself to others. Some writings, such as Poems and Song lyrics calms be down. Writing letters to friends and family gives me the happiness that I need when they are far away. A negative aspect about writing, for me, is the fact that I usually get frustrated and nervous when it comes to essays and book reports. I honestly have a hard time writing essays when it comes to many situations. Sometimes I end up thinking to hard about the topic I am suppose to be writing about and I end up losing focus and going off topic. Since I don't enjoy writing essays and frequently end up confused by them, I have a habit of quitting on myself before I finish my work. Essay's aren't my kind of thing when it comes to writing.

Other than that I like to write. I like to write many different kinds of things that attract peoples attention. Even If it is just random phrases or words. I like to be funny when I write. As well as be creative and have an open mind. What I like most about writing is that it is another good way to communicate. My favorite writer would be myself. I enjoy what I write no matter what other people say about me. If it sounds good to me then it goes on paper. I get excited when I find something new to write about. I am my own fan. Being my own favorite writer, I can look back at things I have written and easily correct them. I am amused by myself with the things I write. Free writing is a good way to relax your mind. You can write anything and everything that comes to mind. I have asked several people about writing and from their point of view writing to them is not as exciting as to how it is with others. Like I mentioned earlier, everyone has their own way of writing and how they feel about it.

good thoughts but there are too many I's. Perhaps consider lowering the amount of I's

There are an a lot of I's in there. It could also benefit from a little more organization. Seperate it into two parts: your feelings towards writers and your feelings toward writing.

Writers to me are talented.

Perhaps revise this to say: "To me, good writing requires talent." Or "To me, good writers are talented." Just because a person writes does not meant that they have talent. ;)

I feel that writers have a creative and imaginary mind.

I think that each writer has their own uniqueness which makes them stand out when compared with others.

The fact that everyone has their own way of thinking and using their brain makes things exciting.

Me being able to write i love because I am able to be myself and be heard by many others.
I love being able to write because it allows me to communicate and express myself to others.

Some writing , such as poetry and song writing calms me down and I can express myself.

----I would take out the last part of this sentence because it is unrelated to the rest of the sentence. If you are trying to say that writing calms you down because you can express yourself then it would make sense.----

Writing letters to friends and family gives me the happiness that I need when they are far away. and I am able to show affection.

----Again I would take out the last part of this sentence as well. It just seems sloppily tacked on the end of the sentence. If you really want to keep it then I suggest that you make a new sentence.----

Negative meaning is that I get frustrated and nervous when it comes to essays and book reports.

What do you mean by "negative meaning"? Perhaps you meant something like this: "A negative aspect about writing, for me, is the fact that I usually get frustrated and nervous when it comes to essays and book reports."

Sometimes I end up thinking to hard about the topic I am suppose to be writing about and I end up losing focus and going off topic.one thing and then a different other topice.

"I get confused alot. I dont do alot of essay writing and when i do i end up quiting on myself which is a habbit that i want to break. I dont enjoy writing essays."

----Combine these sentences to something like this: "Since I don't enjoy writing essays and frequently end up confused by them, I have a habit of quitting on myself before I finish my work."----

"As well as be creative and have an open mind as well."

----Be careful about unnecessary repetition. You only need to say "as well" one time in this sentence.----

My favorite writer would be myself.

Being my own favorite writer, I can look back at things I have written and easily correct them.

if I say that I only like peoples writing it brings the confidence up in me and make me become a better writer.

This sounds awkward. Perhaps reword it to something like this: "If I only give other writers positive feedback about their writing it brings up my own confidence and improves my writing as well." Also you need to explain why it would boost your confidence to give only positive feedback to other writers and how that would have any bearing on the improvement of your own writing. Why can't you give some negative feedback as well? People will not learn to be better writers if everyone always tells them that they are doing fine. Heck, even the point of this site is to offer constructive criticism. :)

Can you find some way to connect your attitude towards writers with your attitude towards writing, perhaps by starting with how you personally feel about writing, and what you know about what writing requires, then moving on to talk about how that informs your opinion of writers? At the moment, the essay really seems like two separate pieces that have been wedged together. I was going to suggest you just pick one and write solely on that, but I see that the prompt won't let you do that, so you need to find a way to unify the two halves of the topic in some way. Otherwise, the essay will seem, as it currently does, a bit disjointed.

I feel that writers have a creative and imaginary minds. You can make a big improvement by using the numbers rule;writers/minds.

Does your word processor have a spell check? That can quickly fix the misspelled words.

I think that each writer has their own uniqueness that makes them different towards others/ stands out.

Everyone has their own way of thinking and using their brainwhich makes things exciting.

Like I have mentioned earlier.. I was just thinking to hard that I didn't even realize I was using so much I's until I read over it again.

Thanks a lot again!

If this is formal, then perhaphs there should be no I, you, me, etc.

It will be impossible to completely eliminate the use of "I" in an essay on this sort of topic, which asks you to discuss your own attitudes towards a subject, rather than objectively analyzing it. I still say you should move the first paragraph to the end. At the moment, you have a paragraph on writers, a paragraph on writing, and a paragraph on yourself as a writer. The first and third paragraphs seem to naturally belong together. Your essay is improving, though, so you should be encouraged by your progress.
