I have a number of quests in my journal that are already done but got put in a second time due to an unfortunate conversation option. Does anyone know a way to clear these types of quests out of the journal or just drop a quest if necessary?
No, there is no in-game way to do that. Mods and tweaking game files could be able to do the trick, but it will be some time until someone figures it out, especially since the mod-kit isn't out.
You can, however, use quest tracking to organize yourself a little - e.g. track all wanted quests and keep "duplicates" untracked, it will make a mess of your compass but you can use map as needed.
If you are using PC you can use the console command setstage followed by the quest ID to "finish" any quest. UESP has the list of quests and inside each you can see its ID. To open the console command use the tilde-key (~), it sits before the "1" key and under the ESC-key.
If posible, just try to finish the quest by yourself :) unless its bugged of course.
