Word Origin and History for scribble. From Medieval Latin scribillare, diminutive of Latin scribere "to write"  

Related: Scribbled ; scribbling. The noun, "hurried or careless writing," In .

I responded as naturally and automatically as possible, recording my understanding of the energy “trapped”

 

The type of scribbling I’m talking about is emotional drawing from my subconscious,

a way of capturing the subject’s unique quality.

It’s often hard to describe scribbling without relating to almost mystical terms, because this kind of scribble drawing records my deepest impressions, thoughts and feelings  and these things aren’t well suited to verbal (left-brained) expression. But once I get started it all comes together.
