    Is there any single word to mean, "bad handwriting"?

    What's the context please?

    Scribbling perhaps?

    Thank you friend.
    I used to write very badly in my notebook. It doesn't look attractive. So I mean it bad handwriting.

    Yeah, as we call the beautiful handwriting "penmanship", I wonder if there's a word for bad handwriting.......(you can say "poor penmanship" too, but there are two words again :mad: :D)

    Perhaps, cacography.

    Just now, I got it from a dictionary.

    Can I use it in the place of "bad handwriting"?
