For that early stage of planning, brainstorming, what-have-you, I’ve found nothing works as well as paper and a few of my favourite fountain pens, well fueled with Noodlers ink.

For some things, pen and paper to me are still the best option - faster, and more versatile. As well, there is an aesthetic kick which I have yet to find at this stage with any software,

There comes a point when it “feels” right to make the transition to MindGenius or NovaMind, or to develop an outline.

From then, most of the actual writing for me is best done on the computer.
