Non directly to the point, but one thing that could help is also moving 
from office documents to a format that is more vcs-friendly; I have
collected a couple of links to the point at

and expecially

from a (tech-friendly, admittely) writer who did exactly that move.

One thing that I suspect could help less tech-friendly writers 
is to have some integration for VCSes in a writer's editor
or in some text editor without the complexity of a full IDE.
Maybe reText would be a good candidate.
