    maybe you could do a Movable Type kind of thing...have basically a blog and keep it updated, change dates to your liking, etc.

    i was wondering about NoteTaker, is it worth the money? i need a rather robust app that can be simple at the same time....im going to demo it but your feedback (or anyone elses) on this product would be greatly appreciated

    If you are a student you can get NoteTaker for 1/2 off. I find it to be very stable and fast on a 1.2ghz G4 with 512mb RAM. There are many great features to the app and I find it to be a very powerful organizer. Just try out the demo it's what sold me.

    Try macjournal. http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/11374

    I use it for literary writings too. You can keep more than one journal (I keep poetry, story and lyric journals for example) and I believe you can sort the entries by date written and stuff. Can even lock particular journals with passwords and stuff. It's very pretty and it's free too.

    i second the Moveable Type suggestion. you don't have to keep your work online, since your Mac comes with a built-in webserver. you should have no problem installing MT locally.

    stickybrain might not be a bad idea for what you are looking for. Its pretty good at storing stuff and easily searching for them later.
