Incantation and keeping runes

I was reading a story in the Viking trilogy series and it states in there than when carving or making your runes, there is an incantation or saying that must be said absolutely correctly while making each rune; I was left believing there was a separate saying for each rune and after each reading you were to throw them in the fire where the smoke would also let you in on secrets. Has anybody heard of this and would anybody know what the incantations are that need to be said?

Re: Incantation and keeping runes

The name of each rune itself is chanted while being made. The only reason runes would be cast in a fire would be to have their message symbolically rise to the heavens in the smoke, usually in the form of a bandrun (bindrune).
