it's okay.  I worked on mine for 2 years before I was able to gather my thoughts.  Once I got my inspiration, the whole thing took about 30 minutes to write.  I still have all the failure drafts (about 10 of them) and they were pretty awful.

May I ask for a general idea of yours addresses? I seem to be way too ordinary to write a good one

If your life doesn't have some grand narrative to write about - in other words, like most of us, you didn't join the Peace Corps, spend a year living in a grass hut with the Bushmen, and discovered the cure for cancer in your spare time - I would suggest focusing on one specific incident or activity and write about that.  Write with passion and feeling about *something* and you'll have a better PS than the 90% of applicants who'll wind up with something dull and uninteresting that will encourage adcomms to take that post-lunch afternoon nap.
