Let us be cautious about equating creativity with free-form creativity.
Shakespeare wrote many very creative sonnets following a pre-designed
template. Shakespeare's plays were constrained by the limitations of the
theaters in which they were performed.
Come to think of it, theater requires coordinating teams of creative and
technical talent, meeting harsh and unyielding deadlines (the show must go
on), staying within a budget and communicating with an ill-defined target
audience. It would seem to have a lot to contribute to our understanding of
technical writing.
