Assuming you are talking about Writer program, the moment you create new text-box, cursor will be displayed inside it and you can start typing. If you don't type anything at that point but click somewhere else, text-box will be automatically deleted. So make sure you type something and if you want to edit text later, just double-click inside the text-box.

How do you create a text box in Writer in the first place? It isn't in the menus. If you search "Help" for text box, you get lots of irrelevant results.

Take a look at this help page. Text icon is on the Drawing toolbar. If you don't see it, check View → Toolbars → Drawing.
