I've been dreaming of such a tool for some time.
You could have a selection tool (similar to the lasso) which allows you to divide your page by drawing a vertical or horizontal line. Not just a straight line but a freehand line which allows you to draw around any protruding words. Anything beyond the line you draw is assumed to be just a straight line till the border of the page, so you're effectively halving the page horizontally or vertically.
You could then drag either the left/right or top/bottom half of the page away from the dividing line you just drew, to create blank space as required.
It's difficult to describe but would be easy to use if implemented.
