C-x C-f creates a new buffer (if it does not already exist) for editing
a file (Emacs will ask for the file name). The file does not have to
exist already. After editing, you just do C-x C-s to save.

If you already have a buffer that you have written text into
(eg., the "*scratch*" buffer), you can do C-x C-w to save it.
