Could this be the result of how you learnt to work in your formative
years? I'm asking because I've never really worked in anything else than
WYSIWYG, and whenever I experimented with writing first and formatting
later, it meant more and slower work for me. Not only do I not find
applying formatting a significant distraction, I find that working with
formatted text makes it easier to distinguish the different parts of the text.
