QUESTION: Does the word count include the title, or just the body of the piece of writing?
ANSWER: Word count doesn't include the title. Or "The End" in case you've added that. It also doesn't include the category and word count number at the top right of the first page of your entry, so you can just count the bare bones of the story and write that number in for the word count.
