# Creating and Editing zettels

You may use any text editor with Markdown support to edit your zettel files. Neuron provides a command to create new zettel files with the suitable Zettel ID:

neuron new

This command will print the path to the file created. Use -e to also open the text editor:

neuron new -e

Of course, you can also start with an empty file and begin writing:

echo "Hello world ..." > "My new note.md"
