Where can I get a word count progress widgetthingumbob?

I'm not entering official NaNoWriMo, but I am planning to devote November to Finishing LHAD, Dangit!

I posted the first chapter in December 2007, and I'd love to finish it five years later. I see some hopes, although it will take a big push, as I just posted chapter 48 and anticipate that it may run to chapter 60. (49 is finished in draft, and is currently being polished; 50 is in early stages.)

i need a word counter thingumbob to track daily progress. Suggestions?

As a side note, I am sad. "Soldier of Spira" starts out so well that it is useful to me for getting into Auron headspace, but once again I've hit a point in the saga where it's difficult to keep reading.

On the one hand, I'm afraid that my writing is the same way. On the other hand, I believe that my writing is better, and I feel a twinge of jealous-writerdom. (SoS gets the fame, the recs, the tvtropes entry, the all-over-the-web fan following.) Then again, there are many other excellent fanfics that don't get the acclaim they deserve. Not that I don't (Clarion by justira) keep trying (CLARION OMFG) to correct that.

I still think Auron's mental monologue in Soldier of Spira regarding Seymour's in-game introduction is a fun bit of meta:
