Wordcounts

I'm curious what wordcount your software uses.
My 2,628-word chapter is recorded on your site as 3,003.

I'm not saying this as a complaint. I really don't care, but it seems excessive, so I thought I'd make you aware it's happening.

I get it that some programs differ in how they count hyphens, etc, but that usually results in less-than-ten-word discrepancy. Not few hundreds.

I just checked 4 different programs because I'm a curious person. I got 2,628, 2,631, 2,701 and 2,635. The highest one came from Hemingway app.

I notice this too. I'll also type here, have like 2500 words, edit in Word and swap "--"s to "—" and have a higher word count.
