It never felt like that to me (with halfway decent hardware).

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.

But, as I said, I suspect that this a product of acquired working habits,
not a general truth that applies to all writers.
