I have some advice: people who suck at math don't become accountants, acrophobics avoid careers as pilots, and those w/ no rhythm don't play jazz guitar. If you're a terrible writer, why on God's green earth do you want to be a lawyer?

In defense of OP, I'd say that legal writing is very different from PS/creative writing and involves completely different skill sets.

I agree.

Send me your PS and I will take a look at it. I have a slow week at work, and I don't mind giving you some feedback.
