There is probably some smart way to do this that I don't know, but
in wxPython you could have your textbox and bind it to an EVT_TEXT
event, and then in the event handler for that write the contents of
the textbox to your file. This way on any change in the textbox,
there would be a write to the file. But I don't know if that is
practical or if the writes would keep up well. You could also have
a counter and when the counter reaches x characters then do a write.
Or you could set a timer and do the write every x seconds.

Something like this, perhaps?

class Storage(object):
def __init__(self, the_file):
self.the_file = the_file
def write(self, message):
import sys
sys.stdout.write(message)
self.the_file.write(message)

my_file = open("my_text.txt", "w")
store = Storage(my_file)
print >store, "Hello world!"
my_file.close()
