    Im gunna answer my own question.
    I think its practice honestly because if you write for 30 years but never practice the expierence doesnt make you good.Hah and the bad ego helps because alot of people are so full of themselves that they think they are too good to improve.

    lol... <-- new guy being a post whore today...

    interesting question actually because the question kind of answers itself but still interesting to think/read/talk about... its all relative, its all a matter of taste.

    Just to give an example, one of my crew-mates thinks every piece I'm proudest of as my worst work, so its such a matter of taste that it go can go completely different ways. I'm a little surprised when I hear people liking silver/chrome better than colors and throw ups more than pieces... but you got those...

    Personally what hits me is the dynamics of the structure of letters, the more alive you can create them, and especially natural elements warped in somehow... I have all these little things that get my attention. The feeling a piece gives you... for instance old school graff... there is something so unique about that feeling it seems like they've managed to capture the feeling of being pioneering hip hop in the 70's... so there's alot of old scool graff which can impress me more than something high tech hardocre wildstyle...

    I LOVE the illegal element... I'm always alot more fascinated if somethings done at an illegal spot that concentrated to one legal wall...

    And by boiling all this down, Style! I dont know how many people say its about style because "thats the thing to say", but I definately mean it... style... its all about style... and being able to recognize a writre even thow 2 pieces are almost completely different in style and everything, there is still that touch which a write can never escape which is just HIS/HER style... just that thing makes it cool...
    ..and toys dont have that actually... toys just havent developed it... themselves in artform... etc...

    A good writer is someone who can invision something and put it out there without mistakes. Also someone with can control, style, gets good spots, knows what colors work together, and have dedication.

    a good writer is someone who will just put 110% effort into graff for what ever reason they are in it for

    somebody people, let alone writers will remember, far after their work is buffed.

    50% originality
    40% conecept
    10% Respect
    5% effort

    Obviously The last ones a metaphor, for pushing beyond pre-concieved limits. pocket philosophy from ours truly.

    Having heart, patience and endurance. Being respectful helps, but dosent necessarily make you any better or worse of a writer.. just as a person.
