Word counts I'm a little confused

Hi so I was checking my word count on writing history. Some of my words are being counted as draft and some are some are being counted as other. I’m worried now that I’m gonna have chunks on my book in a different place. What is the difference between draft and other?

I’m still relatively new to scrivener so this may not even be an issue.


Everything that’s in the Draft (or sometimes called Manuscript) folder in the Binder is part of your book and counted under “draft”. Words written elsewhere are counted under “other”.

That’s what I was worried about. All my stuff should be in the manuscript folder because on those days I was just knocking out scenes. Ok I’m gonna have to look now where those other bits could be within the binder.

Thank you.
