If you think you can do it go for it!

Ten seconds. Ten seconds. Till he comes. I braced my self for the hit. In 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. WhACK. I get slapped across the face. Making me fall on the floor. "Get in there and cook my breakfast right now." Yelled my dad Alan. He exits my tiny blue room. I have a single bed, a desk, and a closet filled with hande me downs. I walked towards thekitchen. There is only one word to decribe my kitchen . Ridicolus. Ragdey cabniets, insects and rats every where, and our refirgirator almost empty. I grabbed the eggs and bacon. I can sum my whole life up in forty seconds. MY name Belinda Montez i'm 15 years old. I live in an a torn down small two bedroom house.My "Parents" Are abusive and i've been RAPED. Yes, RAPED by my father. He was drunk. He nevered did it again. He took the only thing I had left my innocence. They only abuse me if they're drunk or just because they want to. I set the plate of food in front of them. THey said they were going to kill me when i turn eighteen, cause they won;t be able to get anymore welfare checks off of me. So, I have 1,095 days left to live. I can't runaway . No money. I can't kill them i want to go to heaven. I'm totally alone, I had a friend but she left a year ago. YOu think i would be sucidal, but NO. I have a list of things to do before that time comes.

1.Have my first kiss

2.get a boyfirend

3.tell my story

That's it. I grabbed my withered book bag and headed out the door.

i hate school. Every one calls me the poorgirl because of my clothes. I wear the same thing everyday really. A white t-shirt, Jeans, converses, and a withered old sweater. This year i grew mentally stronger. So, if anyone messes with me i'll knock them out. No talking. No questions asked. "WELCOME BACK LIONS!!" i read on the school's banner. "Name" barked the school's secretary. "Umm Belinda Montez. ."I replied. She quick;y hands me a scehdule. First period English. MY teacher Mr HAyes. Do iike him?No! WHy? He's arrogant and cocky. He wears tight white shirts, kakhi pants, and 50's styled shoes. He's forty years old and a virgin. "Alright my class won,t be easy." "Tihs is the hardest class you will take."

My other two classes were normal. Fourth period teacher Ms. Londell Is a mixture of Don King meets Rachel Ray. She's nice. "Okay class i want all of you to fill this paper out." "I Want to know all about you" She said handing the papers out.

"When your done turn them in." She added with a bright and friendly smile. She took a seat at her desk. I nevered smiled like that. I want to but I can't. I looked at the paper.

Your Name: Belinda Montez

Parents Name: Alan and Melanie Montez

Intrests: Blank

Phone number:2056905

Address: Mable Drive 305

Give me a brief synopiss about yourself: Blank

I got up and turn in my paper. I felt fifithteen paris of eyes staring ot me.

"This is it?" She asked dissapointed. "Yes, ma'm" I mummbeled. She sighed. Alright go have a seat. What does she wants me to say. Hi, I'm Belinda Montez. I'm fifthteen years old and my parents abuse me. The kids at school make fun of me and i'm toatally alone, and I was RAPED. Yeah no way. Fifth period is lunch I eat alone.

Try using the "show dont tell" technique. show the things dont plainly tell. It makes things more intersting, but over all its moving and brings out deep emotions. try stretching it more :)

Hmmm, interesting. First of all, one thing that kind of bugged me: its spelled "fifteen", not "fifthteen". You had a tense change from present to past when you say "I looked at the paper". It should be "I look at the paper." There were some grammar mistakes, but those can be fixed easily. Honestly, I didn't like how you gave away the fact that she was raped at the very beginning. Maybe save it? I don't know.

You have a good idea here, just , I don't know flesh it out and give it more emotion.

If you get the chance, read some of my work :)

This seems to be the beginning of a very emotional and engaging story! I really enjoyed what you have so far. You've handled this tough topic very well. 

As some people have mentioned, your grammar could be improved, and also the sentences feel slightly choppy.

Maybe reconstruct the sentences so that the flow of this piece is smooth and easy to read without awkward stops. 

Other than that, very well done. Keep writing!!!

It was very interesting, just work on your grammar.  There are some parts where it would be better if you had commas, or semicolins, or colins, but I liked it.

The storyline is great! (but I hope this is fictional) Just watch for grammatical errors and typos. (It helps if you type it on a word processor and then paste it onto Teen Ink.) This is overall a very nice piece. I hope that you will take a look at some of my work! :D

I agree with Courtney.  It's a good story, but you need to work on your writing.  (i'm only trying to help.)  Not just grammar, but how you lay things out and progress into the story.  other then that, good job!

The storyline is good...the whole thing was ok. Not my favorite but not bad. Work on the spelling, correct punctuation, etc. and it'll improve a lot :)

This is great I am excited for the second part. The only thing I could say is Really work on the punctuation, spelling, sentences, etc... it was a little difficult to read. I really liked it, it's emotional but really realistic. Good job! Keep writing!
