Right clicking on EN does that too, however I wish they would add a bottom bar.

Yes, the Windows/Mac platforms can provide a wordcount per note

I'd advise you to not write your 50000 word novel in a single note
Break it up into multiple notes.
You can link all the sub-notes into a single note having a Table of Contents

I'm breaking it into notes for each chapter. I then add a reminder to the toc to always keep it at the top :)

Yep, I have! Really finding them useful, I love the story beats one. :)

The Evernote blog posts are what introduced me to Nanowrimo, and what inspired me to do it.

Okay, thanks. I don't really write often, just a student, so I will stick with EN atm. I'll check out the Scrivener trial though.

I've downloaded the Scrivener trial version and will be using it through November for this project
I'm not an author, but I collect writing tools

I don't see why people would use a note tool for extensive writing.

I'm grateful for the Evernote Editor, and I use it extensively to assemble notes and insert short text.
For serious work, I switch to dedicated software.
I store the finished products in my Evernote database

I'll give it a go, and see how I like it. Is there a quick and simple setup guide for it? :)

Scrivener is extremely detailed but there is a tutorial project when you first launch the program. I highly recommend reading through it before November.

How can I link my EN docs to it? :) 

Every note in Evernote can have  a public link URL; in essence a note can be a web page.

Scrivener is great at importing web pages into the Research and Inspect sections.  Just give it the url 

I suppose you can just copy your note, but the URL provides a link, and the data can be refreshed
