Hello there,

I have a question about word counters on the archives.

My fic Staring into the Fire is 2005 words according to MSW on my laptop. When it appeared on the archives, it was 2110. I thought perhaps the extra 105 words was due to the summary, but tweaking that (and removing all chapter/story notes) didn't make any difference.

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but for this challenge the maximum word limit was 2100. I cut out 13 words from the story in the end, but I'm curious as to why this happened.

If anyone knows ...

Carole
