Scribblomania–A Word for Writers

Scribblomania was a “word of the day” from the Oxford English Disctionary.

It’s a good word for three reasons:

  1. It’s a good condition when a writer wants to produce a book.
  2. It’s hard to spell wrong: scribblomania, scribblemania, and scribbleomania are acceptable alternate spellings and it’s not likely anyone will notice it’s misspelled if you use a fourth alternative.
  3. If someone tries to interrupt, you could, with a scowl. a growl, and an emphasis on mania, encourage that person to leave you alone.

Definition: Intense enthusiasm or mania for writing.
