Hi Daniel — sometimes I edit in the web browser, sometimes on my desktop. For my desktop, I use vim, which you can set up to make it easier to edit prose or long lines. Let me know if you have any other q’s!

How do you set up vim to make it easier?

I don't really use any plugins for it, using things like / and f and ) are good
enough for me. There is the vim-pencil plugin and guides like

which might be useful to you

Cheers,
