Hypergraphia

The compulsion to write.

Why not start off the brand new era with a word so fitting. or is it…?

My admiration for this word was on the surface. Heck, Scribel would have been called Hypergraphia, had I not done some further research.

It’s actually a serious medical condition which shouldn’t be underplayed.

“It is found in persons with temporal lobe epilepsy and right hemispheric strokes and tumors, among other brain disorders.” according to a medical dictionary.

 

I had no idea it had severely negative connotations attached to it.

Such a beautiful word but much more to it when you look beyond its surface.
