Refactoring isn’t just for code

Earlier today, I came across this post where screenwriter John August ‘refactors’ Katy Perry’s recent single Roar . It is interesting to see how he goes through the process of coming up with better lyrics by trying several intermediate steps as well as trying to identify the true intention of the lyrics in the process.

Hopefully you can get something from the post that might allow you to look at your code from a slightly different angle in order to come up with something better in the end.
