In my wildest dreams, the package I’m looking for pops up a one-line text editor once every half hour (configurable), prompting me to write a sentence about my current effort and focus. (e.g. “What are you working on?”)
Once I hit enter, the window is gone, and my timestamped entry lands in a nicely formatted file- so when I need to do my timecard, or write up accomplishments for my annual review, I have a single resource that documents my work.
Hitting escape should dismiss the window, and the timestamped entry should indicate dismissal, as well as the file currently edited (or tab name, I suppose, for those times the current tab isn’t a file).
