    Lex Out Loud - Worldbuilding for Science Fiction 01: Introductions



    Lex Out Loud is a podcast for writers, readers and all lovers of speculative fiction.
    Lex Starwalker is beginning work on his third novel, and he’s taking you along for the journey.
    Whether you’re wanting to write a novel or screenplay yourself, or you’re a game master wanting to write an adventure or campaign,
    or you’re just curious about the creative writing process, this show is for you!
    In this first season, Lex will explore worldbuilding in depth.

    The setting is the stage where the story takes place, so it’s a natural place to start.
    In this first episode, Lex introduces himself and his reading and writing experience.
    He also shares his plans for the show. Full shownotes at https://www.starwalkerstudios.com/lol...
    "Ich kann freilich nicht sagen, ob es besser wird, wenn es anders wird, aber soviel kann ich sagen: Es muß anders werden, wenn es gut werden soll."
    Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742 - 1799)

    Was nützt es, wenn wir mehrere Sprachen sprechen,
    solange wir nicht die Geduld aufbringen,
    einander zuzuhören...

      Researching the Future | LOL 003



      Writing most novels is going to require at least some research.
      How much depends a lot on the genre you’re writing in and the details of your novel.
      Research is the natural place to start your worldbuilding, and in this episode, Lex discusses the research
      he’s doing for his current project and his approach to research in general.
      Finally, Lex shares some resources and inspirations he’s found invaluable.

        Lex gives some thoughts on how to get excited for your novel when you're just not feeling it,
        but mostly he nerds out about space elevators. Full shownotes at https://www.starwalkerstudios.com/lol...

          Worldbuilding the Future of our Solar System | LOL 005



          Lex gives a clarification on his enjoyment of space opera, and then goes on into worldbuilding.
          He talks about how he’s using a few different sources to aid in his projections of how humanity will settle the solar system.
          He figures out how far he wants this process to have progressed, and this helps determine the level and types of technology that will be required.
          Finally, Lex wraps up the episode with a preview of the topics he’s planning for the near future
          and an invitation for listeners to help guide the show’s trajectory. Full shownotes at https://www.starwalkerstudios.com/lol...
          Beer-Can-Cities in Space! | LOL 006



          Lex explores some of his ideas for the cities of his story, which are great rotating cylinders in geostationary orbit around Earth,
          connected to the Earth by space elevators. To aid in this discussion, Lex explores some real-world designs of orbital habitats,
          including the O’Neill Cylinder, the McKendree Cylinder and Kalpana One.
          He also touches on arcologies and graphene. Full shownotes at https://www.starwalkerstudios.com/lol...

            Future Earth History 1: Living in Low Earth Orbit | LOL 007



            Lex begins an exploration of the future history of Earth, starting at the present day and moving forward,
            with a focus on the expansion of humanity into the rest of the solar system.
            The first foundational step in this journey is fully utilizing low Earth orbit (LEO).
            Only with the necessary infrastructure in place in LEO will we be able to move to other parts of the solar system.

              Future Earth History 2: Developing Cislunar Space | LOL 009



              Lex continues his exploration of the future history of Earth.
              This week he looks into goals to better utilize cislunar space, using the Roadmap to Space Settlement published by the National Space Society as a guide.
              Lex focuses in on how space solar power, especially, will change life on Earth for the better and make the rest of what we want to do not only possible, but easier and cheaper.
