You can insert a document word count in your document by inserting it
as a field: Insert > Field > More fields..., then select Statistics
from the Document tab. Select Words with an Arabic (1 2 3) format, then
press Insert. However, I do not know if it is possible to automatically
move this information to a worksheet. I tried with Sheet > Link to
External Data in Calc, but even though I placed the information in a
table in my Writer document, I could not link the two. The only option
I can think of right now is the trusted copy/paste.
I hope this helps,

I usually have several writing projects on the go and need to keep
track of progress. At the moment I have a simple spreadsheet that I
update from time to time with wordcounts from the documents I’m
working on. It occurs to me however that somewhere in Writer there
must be a function that calculates word count in order to display it
in the footer display. Is it possible to access that function via
Calc and keep it automatically updated?

I’m using Windows 10.
