Is there a term for writing only on the right-hand page of notebooks then flipping the notebook over and working from back cover to front cover?

I *hate* writing on the left-hand page of notebook. Maybe I have an odd pen-grip but I find the middle of the notebook seems to get in the way as a write (especially with spiral-bound notebooks!).
So I write only on the right page and once I get to the end of the notebook I close it, flip it vertically and start writing from back-cover to front-cover, again only writing on the right hand page.
Is there a term for this? Is it a popular technique and does it have any historical significance or is it actually really uncommon.
