Importing/Exporting RTF/Word documents is usually a pain with
LyX/LaTeX. This has been discussed extensively in the past on the
list, and I think there is also something on the wiki. In addition to
Richard's suggestions, you could try eLyXer for HTML export (to be
imported into Word) and the LibO-powered export to ODT (although I'm
not seeing it in my menus right now).

Good luck

PS Maybe Steve and Rob have something to add on Vim/LyX/Scrivener.
