MacJournal has been a critical tool for me as a writer. This is where I explore so many of my ideas for columns, essays, poetry or fiction. It's a wonderfully well thought out piece of software. Most fun for me, as I have been blogging, has been it's interface with Blogger. It works with Livejournal, too. It functions as a basic text editor, utilized Mac OS X's spell check. You can play with fonts, colors, add links, etc. It's been a good notetaker, too. I use this often and recommend it with fervor. Yes, fervor!
