Wrote a new script where I can quickly write little stories of what's going on in my life. It's kind of like a little journal. I set the DAILY_STORY_DIRECTORY to a folder in dropbox.

The only thing I'm unsure of right now is I want to use textarea but I don't know how to actually submit what's been typed. Hitting "enter" just (correctly) inserts a newline. I tried ⌘+enter and that didn't work. Anyone know how to submit a textarea?
