Trust me it's worth it

But I always write down key words on a piece of paper beside my bed and notes in point-form just to help me remember. There is always time for that at least. And I'm surprised how only 5 words can become an entire page when I actually sit down later and type it all out in detail. I am also surprised when I don't do this I find it very hard to remember much at all. Dream journal habits do help dream recall, I think we can all agree on that.
But, if you are asking if having a detailed dream journal is a necessary step for lucid dreaming, then no. I have had LD's in the past before I ever started a dream journal. I like to have a dream journal for the fun of it, and if it becomes 'work' it is no longer fun. Recalling dreams happens in the 10-15 minutes or so after sleep and it all takes place in your head. No need to write it down unless you feel it is important or if you are in the habit of it.
Dream recall happens in the mind, not on paper or word-processing programs. They only help fill in the details and leave a record for your own future posterity for yourself. (which is a good reason and why I like it)
I suggest for you to just jot down the main points your dreams seeing you remember them well anyway. No need to be doing anything which causes you issues or you dont like.
