Is anyone else having trouble with the word count? It's saying my story is 101 words, but my word counter in Word (as well as my brain) has counted exactly 100 words.

Help!

Are you using dashes / hyphens? Some word counters count those as words.

Thanks. Wasn't using hyphens, but I was able to maneuver a sentence to bring it to 99 words, which then made it read 100 words. LOL
