Thanks for trying to help though, I really appreciate it.
Hold on here. "And my story description doesn't seem to show up either..."
This is really important information, because that means that it's not just one entry not working, but your entire lang file.

I am guessing that NOTHING in your lang file shows up, right?
If you really have corrected
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryDescription">
into
<CATEGORY Name="CustomStoryMain">
then
your lang file is either not named extra_english.lang (like maybe it's named "extra_english.lang.txt" and you just don't see the ".txt" because you have file extensions turned off)
or your lang file is not in the correct folder.
Could you type me the directory path to where your lang file is?

Sure!

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\amnesia the dark descent\custom_stories\HouseOfUsher

Also, I just erased everything but the description and then it showed up, but as soon as I added this inside the <LANGUAGE> </LANGUAGE>

then the description wouldn't show?

<CATEGORY= "Journal">
<Entry Name="Note_firstnote1_Name"> "A Hastily Written Note"</Entry>
<Entry Name="Note_firstnote1_Text"> "Little Teapot."</Entry>
</CATEGORY>

<CATEGORY= "Journal">
should be:
<CATEGORY Name= "Journal">

RE: Note Text Won't Show Up

You haven't specified a "Name" in your CATEGORY tag. Try the following:
<LANGUAGE>
<RESOURCES></RESOURCES>
<CATEGORY Name="Journal">
<Entry Name="Note_firstnote1_Name"> "A Hastily Written Note"</Entry>
<Entry Name="Note_firstnote1_Text"> "Little Teapot."</Entry>
</CATEGORY>
</LANGUAGE>
I would advise you at least give my Lang Editor Tool quick try, it handles all the syntax for you so you can focus on writing content rather than deal with errors - failing that you can load your .lang files in and check the info tab to see error message reported.

You shouldn't need to. Just download the latest version from the topic and extract the zip to wherever you want the tool to go, you are then free to run it, no installation required. If the program doesn't run / crashes on start up you may need to grab .net Framework 3 redist - this is all assuming you are running on (a XP or later) windows OS of course.
