To make a custom "journal" system, you need to create a very very long series of Common Events, which usually consists of a custom menu system really. If you are new to RPG Maker, I would refrain from making complex systems for now.
To get a better understanding, you can download RPG Maker games and see how they do their systems, at the moment I am also making a "Journal" system for my quests and hunts. It is rather complex and I'm currently trying to decern it myself. But I'll get back to you if I discover something that makes it rather easy to compose.
Ok thanks im still pretty new i know most of the basics and i'm starting to work on the more advance stuff so i'll look poke around at some stuff
