Hypergraphia

The uncontrollable urge to write excessively.

One of the symptoms of Geshwind Syndrome.

Graphomania, a related though less specific term.

In meetings, where people talk and talk and say nothing, and waste your time and have no consideration for anyone but themselves, I am always gripped with a desire to scribble; scribblemania.

Sometimes when I'm lost in my work and unsure of how to proceed, I find that engaging in a kind of hypergraphia -- writing anything, anything at all, will get me unstuck.
