I am not sure why you don't use the agenda, there really should be no
need to compile this data manually.

- Enter your task with capture. This *is* a quick way, and you should be
  able to setup a binding that schedules the new task to today by
  default. Put the tasks wherever they should live in your org cosmos.
- At the beginning of the day, start your agenda for today. 
  Copy and paste it, export it to html, whatever. Send it to your
- Work through your tasks. If you can't finish a task, don't mark it
  didnotdo, but simple reschedule it for tomorrow; the change will be
  reflected in your log drawer.
- At the end of the day, or early next day, start the agenda and use
  org-agenda-log-mode, probably with C-u. 
- `C-u l' should show you all there is, given it is properly configured:
  Task you finished, tasks you did not finish and hence rescheduled for
  later, even your sections (teaching, habits, random tasks) can be
  reflected with categories. Just copy and paste it in your email and
  you are done.
