Applescript status output

Is there some easy way to obtain a status output while an AppleScript is running? I'd like to be able to view something that said "Part A of the script complete, now starting on Part B..."

I tried using the results window, but can't see how to get it to open until the script is complete.

Is there an easy solution to this?

I dont think so unless you write into the script an instruction that displays a dialog box. Something like

Tell application "simpletext"
run
end tell
display dialog "simpletext is now running"
end

Something along those lines. I know that script probably wont compile but you get the idea.
