Mogigraphia

Postby Grogie » Mon Dec 19, 2005 5:47 am

I saw this interesting word at wordsmith.org today. I thought it would interest many of us here because I assume we do at least a little bit of writing. It simply means writer,s cramp.

related to hypergraphia
Definition of Hypergraphia

Hypergraphia: The driving compulsion to write; the overwhelming urge to write. Hypergraphia may compel someone to keep a voluminous journal, to jot off frequent letters to the editor, to write on toilet paper if nothing else is available, and perhaps even to compile a dictionary. Hypergraphia is the opposite of writer's block.

medically it's related to epilepsy, but not necessarily in practice. I've experienced bouts of hypergraphia that resulted in Mogigraphia, but not in any "fits".

I think hypographia and hypergraphia must be different, in Google I found no real definition of the hypo, nothing much but blogs, generally the suffixes mean things worlds apart.
OOPS, NO ONE CAUGHT IT I MEAN PREFIXES OC.

I think that I might have hypergraphiphobia, the fear of writing too much!
