First of all you need to stop relying too much on techniques.
You have to develop a confidence in your own ability to get lucid dreams, and that confidence should be based on your own excitement, your own concrete LD goals and your ability to recall dreams.
Techniques are only useful if you think of them as some extra assistance.
I say spend a few weeks on simply writing down your ordinary dreams as much as possible, and look for dreamsigns - just writing down your ordinary dreams and reviewing them can be extremely exciting in its own right.
I think it’s very important to appreciate even your normal dreams, at least as long as you are chiefly improving your dream recall.
Also, you need to have a real goal to aim for.
“A lucid dream” is not a real goal, it’s just the environment where you want to experience something - but what?
You are the only person who can answer that.
And finally, it’s important to take it easy in your first lucid dream.
Don’t run off and attempt some wizardly the second you become lucid, spend some time on much simpler tasks, like looking at things, touching things and talking to yourself, just so you activate your senses.
