As well as Brian's suggestion re recycled Office licenses, for word processing, Jarte is a popular free option (there is a paid version with more features for $20): http://www.jarte.com/index.html
Open Office and Libre Office are free, open source Office Suites. I think from memory NVDA works better with Libre Office, although not as well as Microsoft Office.
Depending on your writing and how you want to check for errors, ProWritingAid is a checker, similar to Grammarly which goes beyond the spelling and grammar checker in Word. ProWritingAid has an accessible interface here: https://prowritingaid.com/en/Analysis/Editor?screenReaderFriendly=true
And finally beginner to advanced training materials for NVDA can be found in the NV Access shop. I'd recommend starting with the "Basic Training for NVDA", which you can get in various formats either on its own, or in the "NVDA Productivity Bundle" which includes training material for Microsoft Office programs (worthwhile if you do get Microsoft Office rather than one of the other options) as well as telephone support: https://www.nvaccess.org/shop/
