Going back over some of my old work, I am beginning to question if the length of these is too long? I admit I have a rather dense style so that is not helping. However, this is also a really dense book. I want these to be helpful to people who may not understand what is going on, but I also don't want them to get further lost. I am fairly confident I do not need to add anything, but I want to get a second opinion before I go around making major cuts.Turiannerevarine 00:20, 12 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This chapter is quite long, but IMO there is no problem if you want to make the synopsis shorter. Don't feel like if you are making cuts; what is actually important is to keep consistency throughtout each chapter and among them. Btw, don't worry about "History of composition" sections: I think these should be more focused on Christopher's edition (like in Ainulindalë). --LorenzoCB 11:27, 12 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
