I am writing a novel, and I'm posting part of it for everybody to read! Please tell me ways I can improve it, because I want to get it published one day. I remember when my life was normal. Well, almost normal. My dad has this bizarre condition called Parkinsons, and his medication and his slight tremor made it a tiny bit less normal. But other than that, I was like any other six-year-old girl. We had moved out of our small house in Alabama into a bigger one that was closer to the state line. I chose some lavender paint for my walls, and after it dried, I moved all of my belongings in. We were happy. Our family of five had fun. We went to resturaunts, we saw movies, we laughed. I could actually look into my dad's eyes and not feel an urge to cry. But that was four years ago. And a lot of that has changed. I can sit here, at this yellow desk, stare at these lavender walls, and my life never makes any more sense than it did yesterday. Nothing makes sense. Why my dad lives to torture me doesn't make sense. Dad's endless phone calls and crazy texts never make sense. Math class hardly makes any sense. Why my only joys in life are my friends, my diary, and my mother and siblings doesn't make any sense. Why I don't tell the truth about the night mare I live doesn't make sense. But I'm going to make one thing right. I'm going to tell the truth. Everything that's happened to me. I promise there will be no lies. None. The truth won't be pretty, trust me, I've lived through it, I know. But I will tell the truth, the entire, utter truth.
