Indeed, the two types of writing can reinforce each other both
positively and negatively, and in fact, I wrote a term paper on the
subject. One thing I overlooked was that even things that at first
glance would be considered bad in fiction writing can be done for
rhetorical purposes. If you can find it, check out Ramsey Campbell's
short story, "A street Was Chosen." It's a horror story written in the
guise of a government report.

the bigger problem I experience with creative writing is that it
sometimes tends to spoil my dry techwriting. OTOH, writing concise and
chunk-free never made a story worse ;)
