I have just started writing a short story. I have only recently started writing stories and am unsure about my style and would really appreciate some advice and input. :0) I feel my writing is very simplistic but that's the stlye I am going for but am unsure if it works.
Anyway, this is my beginning...
(I'm sorry I can't seem to shrink the font.)
Fay stood in front of the large black door. She pushed down the silver handle and pulled the door towards her. She stepped into an enormous rectangular windowless room looking up at the high ceiling. The room was empty. Empty except for one thing. Fay stared at the red cylinder shaped object in the middle of the room. She heard a quiet thud behind her and knew the door had closed. Without looking back, Fay began to walk slowly towards the object. Once she arrived she could see that it was a large red button fixed to the floor in the centre of the room. Fay knew what she had to do. Without hesitation she sat down in front of the button and crossed her legs. Her index finger pressed down until she heard a click. The button sprung back up and the room went black. Blacker than black. A shudder of fear shot through her. She quickly pressed the button again. The button sprung back up but the room remained dark. With an urgency she pressed it again and again and again. Still darkness. Fay stood and turned and ran in the direction of the door with outstretched arms. Her hands collided with the wall. She frantically pawed it. Was there a handle? She remembered opening it with a handle from the outside. Her heart felt as though it might pound right out of her chest. She stopped. And breathed. Then she felt hot air rush into her ear followed by the words ‘hello Fay.’ She screamed. And shot up in bed.
