If you are JUST USING TEXT! If you are going to just use text and manipulate it different on the page you will need to open a new document in Photoshop and then use your TEXT BOX on the left hand side to draw different text boxes to write your words in. When you are ready to move them and warp them go up to EDIT and then TRANSFORM then you can click on WARP or SKEW. This will allow you to curve your text and then you can transfer form it with the handles around the box.
