Thanks for the pointers! A =while= form with no body wasn't
something that had occured to me, that's pretty useful. The final
command, which does just what I want, is below.


#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(defun my-project-start ()
  (find-file my-project-file)
  (goto-char (point-max))
  (while (org-up-heading-safe))
  (while (not (looking-at "\\* Chapter"))
    (org-backward-same-level 1))
  (other-window 1)
  (goto-char (point-max))
  (abbrev-mode 1)
  (read-abbrev-file my-project-abbrev-file)
