Subjunctive

Hello. Are there any errors in these subjunctive sentences?

Espero que escribas mucho.
Espero que hayas escrito a mi amigo.
Espero que hayas escrito a la familia.
Espero que hayas escrito a mi padre.
Si escribieras un libro, sería feliz.
Si escribieras un libro de tu vida, sería feliz y contento.
Si escribiéramos un libro sobre esta vida, seriamos felices y contentos.
Si hablaras sobre mis pies, sería feliz.
Si habláramos sobre mis pies, seríamos felices y contentos.
Si habláramos sobre los libros, seríamos felices.
Si estuvieras aquí mañana, sería muy feliz.

Thanks.

Hola:

Tus oraciones están bien... pero algunas suenan... raras.

¿Your talking about my feet would make me happy? (possible... weird too)

Si escribieras un libro de tu vida, sería feliz y contento.
Si escribieras un libro de tu vida, me harías feliz y me pondrías contento.

Thanks for the help.

I'd like to get Rusty's opinion so he can explain why I made the error and if there's more.

Gracias.

I agree with Haroldo's opinion about the feet thing. That sounds weird.
The corrections he added make your sentence sound a tad better. The changes emphasize how the actions of the other person would affect the speaker.
