In a frenzy of gathering material for a creative writing group that I was responsible for organizing, I picked up a book that I could never decide where to shelve. It was about taking the form of a writer's workshop and applying it to technical material, including programming. I'll have to look it up (I'll obviously have to check both the writer's group shelf AND the programming shelf to find it) and see if it comments on this, but I my recollection is that it found more of a connection between the productive activities of left and right brain than you'd expect. I'll forward the reference along if anyone's interested.

I'm willing to bet that similarly, most poets doing technical
writing are doing bad technical writing....
