Dome wordsThe weekend before last I went to a writers’ conference in Dallas. It was held at the all-inclusive Gaylord Texan resort. I had never been to one, where everything was under one roof, including an enormous atrium with all kind of trees and plants growing under it, as you can see from the model below.

IMG_7911It made me think of stories with sealed communities, like Stephen King’s Under the Dome and the movie Logan’s Run. Even more disturbing was Caves of Steel by Issac Asimov where people get so used to their sealed community that it never occurs to them to venture into the natural world.

If you wrote about a sealed community, why is it sealed? Are the inhabitants trapped? Or do they stay inside willingly.
