I'm writing a little helper function for use when I'm starting work on a
particular long-term writing project. Basically I found myself doing the
same little ritual of commands two or three times a day, and I got tired

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(defun my-project-start ()
  (find-file my-project-file)
  ;; here's where I go to the most recent Chapter heading
  (other-window 1)
  (goto-char (point-max))
  (read-abbrev-file my-project-abbrev-file)

different headings, most (but not all) of which look like

* Chapter XXX

1. Jump to the "Chapter" heading with the largest number
2. Jump to the bottom-most "Chapter" heading (the bottom-most heading is

using narrowing or using an indirect buffer? I'm not doing anything but
