Didn't get my edit inserted in time. More info:

Since it can take time to write up a chapter post, we'd like to avoid two people working on the same one, so I think it's best if someone speaks up for a chapter before posting. You don't need to commit to a time when you'll post it, just let the rest of us know you've claimed it. If two people claim the same one, you can pm each other to sort it out.

I'm hoping we can keep this loosely structured. There was more structure in the past when there were more people chomping at the bit, so it was important to plan things out in advance. Now I think the best path would be to say at some point in a current chapter's discussion that you'd like to take the one after it, etc. We can discuss multiple chapters at the same time, but if someone wants to do "Of the Beginning of Days," they should speak up in the Valaquenta thread, not this one.

And remember there are virtually no do's and don't's in a chapter posting. I forgot that myself in the past and felt duty-bound to follow the formats of others. I can't find the thread, but someone who was new at it had a totally different (and concise) approach that worked very well for them: they listed a few points of "this is what we learn" and added a few points of "this is what I want to ask." Rather than try to conform to a format, just write down the things that interest you about a chapter, arrange that in the order that you'd like, and ask whatever questions interest you most.

Probably the only "do" that's required is to pose questions of some kind to get the discussion going: responders like a starting point. We wouldn't have gotten very far in this one if I'd said, "Creation story--discuss!"

Another "do:" please put the chapter title in the title of your post.
