Perhaps you could start by typesetting a technical source rather than prose?

I suggest trying to typeset the UK Meteorological Office's Shipping Forecast :-)

- web page version
  <https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/specialist-forecasts/coast-and-sea/shipping-forecast>

- XML source data
  <https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/data/CoreProductCache/ShippingForecast/Latest>

- as broadcast on the Radio
  <https://www.radio-uk.co.uk/podcasts/random-shipping-forecast>

It's a good (in my opinion) source because it is amenable to being printed in several different ways: one might be to simply copy the webpage's layout, while another could be to use columns to fit more onto a single page of text.



Alternatively, a much more demanding exercise would be to typeset the user manual for the XML editing software "Oxygen".
  <https://www.oxygenxml.com>

The XML source for the manual is here:
  <https://github.com/oxygenxml/userguide/blob/master/DITA/UserManual.ditamap>
