In the story editor highlight the text, then go to the paint bucket on the 
upper right and choose a different color.

Chances are if you are printing you want to use CMYK instead of RGB.  You can 
choose your master list of colors with no document open from Edit>colors. You 
can also roll your own.  

Again assuming you are printing the document each page with some color other 
than black or grey becomes a color page, and therefore much more expensive to 
print.  You may want to consider bolding or italics instead.
