A friend of mine is a writer as a hobby — writing about 3 months a year.
He works with Emacs without problems, and without going too deep.

For starters just activate cua-mode.

Then get typing. Feel free to use the menu and toolbar, even if
old-timers often don’t. You won’t need all of Emacs’ features, but you
will learn to deeply appreciate the ones that fit your style of working.

Best wishes,
Unpolitisch sein
heißt politisch sein,
ohne es zu merken.
