Can someone help me to paraphrase this sentence.

Title of the article is "Becoming a Writer" by Russell Baker


"I hated the assignments to turn out "compositions," and went at them like heavy labor, luckluster paragraphs that were agonies for teachers to read and for me to write."

I would appreciate any help

    I would rather write creatively than by a standardized formula.

    This would be what I would call the "gist" of that sentence. However, the original sentence is much more graphic and interesting.
