People's Friend - new guidelines on length

With thanks to Sam: People's Friend are changing their required lengths, to make stories fit better on the page. They now want stories of 1200 words, or 2000-3000. For the longer stories, try to hit lengths of 2000, 2500, 2700, 3000 to give yourself the best chance. Stories of 3500 or 4000 will still be published in the seasonal specials.

Ah. Thank you. That explains why I've been asked to extend a story they like to 1200 words - not so random after all.
