Worthwhile trivialities

I've only just started, and already I'm frustrated with the process of turning parts of my finished chapter into a conference presentation. So I'm trying to think only of the immediate next step in the process. Jenny Davidson's post today was serendipitously helpful in this regard:
No improvement is too small or trivial to be worthwhile. Of a hundred alterations each may seem trifling or pedantic by itself; together they can raise the text to a new level...

From Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia

That is helpful. Hope the presentation is coming along well!
