my name is Raimond, not Richmonds...

What you are asking is very simple. But it sound's like you've never programmed before. So I'd suggest using a scripting lanuage like "AutoHotKey" (or AutoIt). That's more than enough for your request and much easier.

What you'd have to do:
1. Open the file, do a loop over the links
2. execute a http request with the link.
3. analyse the result for storyname, author, and storyid
4. create the folder
5. do a loop with the number of chapters
6. doenload and save each chapter

you also need to write a html to .txt parser....
