the opinion on how good the writing is the audience. So basically to master the elements of good writing try to put yourself in the shoes of your audience (readers). lets say your audience is a group of little kids ... they would want something short but descriptive and funny. If you audience is a college professor s/he would probably want something with descriptiveness like using statistics and imagery and so on (but you get my point right?)

I've read all the above authors' crazy books, wrote my own terrible essays, and I'm still a bad writer :(

well like jagatuba said you just need practice and a little inspiration... everyone is a author underneath

The two most important things to consider before you even put any ink on the page are your audience and your purpose. Who are you writing for is going to define the language that you use and the imagery you create. Knowing your purpose is going to direct your writing and keep you from going off on tangents. But ultimately to get as good as those you mention, practice, practice, practice, and when you are tried of it, practice some more. I keep a journal. Spiral notebooks are great. Write down your thoughts, write down dreams you have as soon as you wake up, write down snippets of conversations you overhear, write down observations. All of these thing help you to practice writing and give you kernels of ideas that you can use or develop on. Get the book, Imaginative Writing: The Elements of Craft by Janet Burroway. Lots of good information and advice and tons of exercises to help you practice.

By the way, your audience can be as simple as yourself. That is the audience when you are writing in your journal. This is the simplest form of writing because you are the only one that needs to understand it.
