As @Riley said,
writing is not necessary in most cases. However if you previously referenced two or more types of paper and wanted to specify which paper you wrote about the dream on, you could say,
I wrote down the bad dream on the writing paper.

Anyway, the correct word is
writing, the present participle of
to write, and not the past participle
