It is really hard to explain pitching in written words. If this is something you really want to do, I'd suggest meeting with a pitching coach in your area to get started correctly. Many kids start either on their own, or with a regular coach that really doesn't know how to pitch. You might even contact a local high school or university coach and ask to meet with them for some pointers. If you could ask you parents for permission to post back what town you're close to, I could try to give you some specific contacts to try. One video I like is Bill Hillhouse's Hoouse of Pitching. Coach Bill is a very good pitcher, and he is an even better instructor. I highly recommend anything Coach Bill teaches. Here are a few video clips:

Politely walk away from anyone that tells you these things:
-Follow through with your elbow pointing to the catcher.
-Closing (or turning) your hips har at release.
-Face the palm towards the catcher through out the downswing and release.
These three bits of misinformation have been taught by many well-meaning coaches, and even a few pitchers.
Here are the more contemporary teaching on these three areas:
-Follow through is loose and natural--never forced.
-The hips should never be forced closed--ever. Some would say they are never forced open.
-The palm only faces the pitch for a micro second during release, the wrist and elbow should be allowed to flex naturally. In fact, at the top of the arm circle, the palm will be facing the catcher, then it faces third base until just before release. After release, the palm often faces down.
