I saw this door in a Portuguese club on Saturday night.

It is set into a brick wall. It’s elevated about three feet off the floor. The top of the door extends all the way to the ceiling. It’s accessible only through a set of impermanent, wooden stairs. The plate on the door reads “Rancho.”

As a writer, I couldn’t take my eyes off this door.

Have you ever seen a better bit of inspiration for a novel?

Gabi Coatsworth No comments have been added yet. And no wonder. I'm racking my brains to explain it...

Matthew Dicks Me, too. But a part of me wants to base my entire next book on it.

Gabi Coatsworth If anyone can do it, you can. You're never deterred by the oddities of life. In fact, they seem to be your specialty. So, go for it.
