“Change”

Hey fellow writers!

Hope 2015 has proven to be an epic year so far for you! I’ve been able to do a lot of writing so far this year, as I’m working on several projects at the moment.

You know when you get a certain spark of inspiration? I was inspired to write something about “change” today. I don’t know why, but I suddenly needed to get it out on paper. Below is the poem that resulted. I hope you enjoy!

“Change”

By Savannah Ostler

Being yourself today

Staying true to who you are

Keeping on your way

Eager to get far

Not an easy thing to do

When everything changes around you.

Friends once kept so dear

Now just shadows in your mind

Then creeps in the fear

You’ve left it all behind

The memories, the places

The people, the faces

If the world stayed the same

Life would be so tame

But life is always in motion

Carrying away like the ocean

A thought so strange

If the world is always changing

We too must change

Through the eyes of a child

Hi friends! Happy Monday. 🙂

I wanted to start this week off with a bang, and I found some inspiration this morning to write a poem when I saw a couple of neighborhood kids playing. As I watched them play, I thought about how carefree and fun-loving kids are. They are innocent. They are bright. Everything is new to them. Everything is exciting. They haven’t at all been jaded, they are dreamers. They are fearless!

So, here’s my poem. I hope you enjoy it!

Child palms colorful paint

“Through The Eyes of a Child

The world shines so bright

So much possibility

Dazzling colors and light

Living with humility

Through the eyes of a child

Life is playful, life is fun

So much to see

Playing in the sand and sun

Alive and carefree

Through the eyes of a child

Music is everywhere

There’s so much to do

Hope is in the air

 When dreams come true

Through the eyes of a child

What happens when a child grows

Their optimistic heart soon goes

The dreams that they once painted

Are now all torn and tainted

If we could cherish their point of view

Looking at the world a new

Restore the youth

Treat each other kind

Then a new world we would find

Through the eyes of a child.

Welcome to my writing blog!

Hello, fellow bloggers!

My name is Savannah, but I also go by Savvy. Most would say that it fits. 😉

I wanted to start a writing blog for many reasons. First of all, I want to give myself a goal of writing something creative at least every week. It could be anything from a poem, a short story, lyrics, a screenplay, or a novel. (Obviously, I won’t be able to finish a novel in a week, but I’d be satisfied if I at least get some work done on one) I will then publish what I write here. (If it’s a novel or a screenplay, I’ll just publish a sneak preview).

Secondly, I want to connect with other writers out there and talk about all things writing. i.e. the creative process, inspiration, formats, the process of getting published, etc. I would love for this to be a place where we can just talk, brainstorm, and encourage each other in our journeys!

A little about me….

10305608_10152467332701631_5628593585074193199_n (1)

I was born in the state of Utah. I have always enjoyed many different forms of the arts. It was from my love of the stage that I decided to attend East Hollywood High, a film school in Salt Lake City. Following graduation, my film ambitions led me to Los Angeles. I have appeared in various feature films, television programs, and commercials. I even had the pleasure of working with the legendary Disney producer, Don Hahn (“Beauty & The Beast”, “The Lion King”).

Since I am a total Disney freak, being able to work with a Disney legend such as Don was a total dream come true for me!

In addition to acting, I’m also a singer, having produced and released three original pop singles, as well as performing at the world famous House of Blues in West Hollywood. I have a total BLAST performing!

Although I certainly have a passion for performing, my first love is, and has always been writing. I have been writing ever since I learned how to read and write. I enjoy many different forms of writing; poetry, lyrics, fiction, and even screenplays.

I love exploring the crazy depths of my mind. Sometimes my head is so full of ideas, that I don’t know where to start! I’m a little ADD, but when I am focused on the story that I’m writing, I can’t stop.I find inspiration for my stories from many different outlets, including my own personal life experiences.

In short, I am a Disney obsessed, persistent, animal-loving, daydreaming, small-town girl living in the city… who secretly dreams of being a princess. Okay, it’s no secret. 😉 Oh, and I LOVE the color pink! (Had to throw that one in there!)

Alrighty, that’s it for tonight. Thanks for checkin’ out my brand spankin’ new writing blog! I will post a little of what I am working on in my next entry! Stay tuned. 🙂
