Also from what I've heard its also very hard to do WILD just before sleep, read the page about it on the site.
But don't take my word for it, I'm just a newbie.

1. Certainly, I've never kept one. A journal will help you mainly with DILDs and to incubate dreams. Failure is in real life the vehicle of growth/experience not success at doing something. Keeping one would help one think about what one is doing, what one wants to do or try, so is a good idea.
2. Most certainly and if you do WILD you'll remember your dreams as much as anything you've experienced in real life. No one taught me to LD and I used the direct WILD training myself, because that's the sort of LD I experienced spontaneously. Whatever sort of lucid dream you try you have the huge advantage of being able to talk to lucid dreamers about them. No one was talking about them when i was experiencing them and training myself to do them. I was going what the hell just happened, I entered dreams with unbroken consciousness.
3. Doing Wilds I never have had any instability problems, though when having spontaneous DILDs I've sometimes woken up as soon as I became lucid.
4. Forget completely trying to experience SP, forget your body altogether and let it go to sleep.

Dont get hung up on detail like SP and HI etc, it is not a linear process with one step leading to the other but and outcome decided but your own skill and relationship with your own mind and body
I only started one for fun. I like to read it from time to time and the words don't matter. The words are only there to spark the memory of the actual event. (Yes, it is actual even though not real. Movies are the same....)
Lately I have found keeping a dream journal too tiresome and just write a few key words on paper after I awaken. I tried reading them recently and after 2 weeks of notes I have no idea what I was talking about!
In my experience, yes, you can lucid dream without a dream journal, but for me, for some reason, keeping a detailed dream journal helps.
And it is fun in the long run, even if it feels like work at the time.
