My suggestions have already been made: post-its/index cards and mind map software.

When I write books, I use post-it notes on my sliding glass door. I can see the whole “map” at once and can move things around easily until the structure is where I want it.

But the mind map can then really help to develop those ideas further. Like creating an outline but more loose and visual.
