I think you could achieve what you want by writing a cell with CellPrint 
and including a tag so that the cell could be replaced later with one 
containing a longer string. However, in practice this might be very 
clumsy - particularly if you have other output going to the notebook, so 
why not write to the status line at the bottom of the notebook? The 
following function will do just that:

writeStatusLine[x___] := LinkWrite[$ParentLink,
       EvaluationNotebook[], StringJoin @@ Map[ToString, {x}]]];
