Hey, mine are pretty similar.

the

of
it
she
that
you

It's proportional though. 23,525 words in mine. And according to this counter it has 11th-12th grade reading level which I do believe is good. I think. Idk what it means I'm not American.

It's analysing the reading level as a whole, not chapter by chapter. Individually, each chapter might be at a different reading level, but it's OVERALL that impacts it. Idk it's not wholly accurate but I'd like to think I was good at this stuff, you know what I mean?

I thought it was supposed to be better if the reading level was lower so people won't be distracted by comprehending your words?
Oh well, it doesn't necessarily work that way with everyone.

It did that to me too, but I just went to the top right and clicked the 'Options' box. I checked "Include common words in word density count", then closed it, then went back and unchecked it. (it was already blank, but it wasn't working right, so that's why i checked it twice.)

Oh, okay.
I got some better results now.
Apparently Ianthe's name is used the most, followed by Chives, David and Antoinette (it does forenames and surnames separately)
All the main character names, and 'demon', 'demons', 'looked' (I KNEW I USED THAT WORD TOO MUCH) and 'time'.
