an obsessive urge to write, graphomania ( greek: graphos to write + mania = insanity) ; morbid mental condition characterized by the writing of long successions of unconnected meaningless words.

German composer Richard Wagner exhibits all the signs of graphomania in his Collected Writing and Poems, namely, incoherence, fugitive ideation, and a tendency to idiotic punning.

The actual term scribomania is used in psychiatric medicine, yet the origins are unclear as it mixes latin and greek.
