What is a a good macOS app for jotting notes?

For my writing, I use Ulysses which is dope, but sometimes I just want to "jot" a quick, *temporary* note - something Ulysses is not well-suited for. What I find is that my important writing becomes drowned in a bunch of notes I shouldn't have saved in the first place. What is a simple, light-weight note-taking app I can use for temporary note-taking?

      Simplenote is one of those finest note-taking apps you can ask for. Coming from Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, it enables seamless ability to publish the notes online. Great app, to sum it up!

    • Simplenote truly was the most beautiful app of its day. It completely transformed what productivity was for me. There aren't many apps you expect to still be using ten years later.
