I. Journaling using a separate Neovim configuration

I have been using zk-nvim for my journal for about two years. zk-nvim is great and I haven’t had any complaints about the journal. But I installed Kali Linux a few weeks ago and searched for a simpler one for jounaling. I have found a good one. It seemed to answer my needs.

II. How to start journaling

IV. To do list

[ ] — 0% complete
[.] — 1-33% complete
[o] — 34-66% complete
[O] — 67-99% complete
[X] — 100% complete

Here are some samples. You have to put a space after ] in the first line. [ ] will change when you press Enter at the end of the last line.
