We've reviewed Scrivener, Ulysses, BBEdit, Word, TextExpander, and SubEthaEdit.

I didn't mention StoryMill by Mariner Software, but I have been fiddling with it a bit, too, and it's an interesting novel tool.

My dog makes a surprise cameo appearance in the background. Her name is Ruby, and she's nine years old. We adopted her as a puppy at the San Francisco SPCA.
