   I have the following setup in order to keep cronological notes.

* In my capture templates I have the following :

  #+begin_src elisp
	("j" "Journal entry" entry
	 (file make-journal-file-name )
	 "* %? :journal:REVIEW: \n %u")
   and I've defined the function like so :

  #+begin_src elisp 
   (defun make-journal-file-name ()
     (concat "~/Planner/Journal/" (format-time-string "%Y.%m.%d.%a" nil) ".org" )
  That way, to create a new entry I just hit 'C-c c j'

  which gives me the following :
  *  :journal:REVIEW: 
    [2012-09-20 Thu]

  in the file ~/Planner/Journal/2012.09.20.Thu.org

  Please let me know if any of that is unclear.

  Hope that helps,
