So I like to write.
I like to write really really long stories.

Can an iPad handle that?

What would be the best App to write on- preferably one that could sync with my computer (and free at that)?
I was thinking Evernote, but would that work for holding 50k+ of words?

What Bluetooth keyboard would work the best? I don't need anything too flashy, but something comfortable and reliable.

Please help, and thanks!

There's many wonderful writing apps for the iPad.
If you have a Mac and are willing to spend around 10$ bucks total, I recommend iA Writer. iA Writer syncs with iCloud and the app is available for both iOS and Mac.

Evernote is a great app too, but if you're going to write as much as it looks like you will, you will end up paying for a subscription (which isn't bad - but over that I'd recommend iA Writer).

Nah, I don't have a mac. I have a windows 8 computer.

What I really need to know is the keyboard information, though. I can't find any good ones.

Hmszelda I think you'll find this article very suitable for your situation:

In terms of keyboards, you could keep it safe and go with the official Apple offering or be more adventurous and consider some of these.
