You might find something that you like to do on Law Review. I didn't like the editing, but I'm mostly reading and reviewing articles now which I love doing. As far as writing the note, I don't know anybody who liked the write-on competition, so I don't think you're unique in that respect. However, since you're an excellent writer you'll have a good chance at getting published. This could be an opportunity for you to sharpen your academic writing and get published before you graduate which is a huge plus for whatever career you enter.
Ultimately, it's up to you, and I think you know you'll do well no matter what you choose. You're in the top 20% at a great school which is a huge accomplishment unto itself. However, everybody I talked to (professors, friends who graduated from law school, other students) after I was invited on, and feeling frustrated with the workload told me that law review is defintely worth it and is the only way to get your foot in the door for many jobs.
