POLL DESCRIPTION

Little Big Wars Inactive Member wonders...

Does anyone else find that documenting your battles for AARs or wargaming journals gets in the way of actually playing the game?

In my recent solo endeavors, I've tried documenting my game move-by-move, but it seems like such a chore. Are there any preferred methods for documenting wargaming sessions?
