Hi! I’m working on this horror story and this is all I’ve got so far. I’d love some meaningful feedback on how to better it and maybe continue it into an actual story.

    The darkness loomed overhead, and the beginning of a thunderstorm dripped down the back of my neck. Absentmindedly pawing at goosebumps, I looked up at the rundown shack of a house and wondered what it once had been. At its prime, the house might have been warm and inviting, hosting grand dinner parties and many a family gathering, but through years of disrepair and longer years of abandonment, the majestic house had reduced to a  mold-ridden, asbestos-filled hut with boarded windows.
    It had been six months since the move, and I strolled by the house without issue until Mom pointed it out to me. While it was intensely risky to go near it, I was drawn to the exotic beast of a house by energies I still can't explain.
