Move cursor to desired column,
Type C-x f RET to set it.

To save this setting, use the customization interface, customizing the  
option `fill-column'.

Unless you are collaborating with others who need hard wrapping, I  
would recommend against using it.  Use soft-wrapping instead for  
greater flexibility and less work reformatting (M-q) while writing.
