Shell based text editor for writing prose

Hash: SHA1

G'day all.

Due to a somewhat complicated set of circumstances I'm looking for a
decent non graphical shell based text editor to write prose with.

- - basically i want to be able to ssh onto my server and write from a
number of remote locations.

I know Debian is blessed with a plethora of programs that can do this,
what I'm after is a recommendation for something that feels good to
write with.

in a perfect world I'd like decent cut and paste, command characters for
end of word/start of word, and export to a human readable open format.

greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of
crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in
concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its
final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved,
seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed
and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars
and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need
to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol
for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state
or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern."
