Emacs is a sea of options... this is an option.  Check out auto-fill-mode

Probably one newbie tendency is to find things like this and add them always to 
be the default with:

(auto-fill-mode t)

which is fine but you probably want to hook in to the mode hooks to do that so 
that auto fill is on (or off) depending upon the mode of the buffer.  I flip 
back and forth frequently so I have this tied to a key.

Good luck!
