This post is Part 1 of a writing series titled An Autobiography of sorts..

I was born in a high bred stainless family, who shared a rack with many others of the same class. Being younger than the rest, I had much to learn about the ways of the world, but it was not difficult to gain an education of sorts from my elders.

Life was easy at first, but, being a Nail, there wasn't much scope for excitement- or movement, for that matter. At least, we were afforded safety from rusting, unlike the lower classes.

Thus, the first part of my life was a simple one, and I was content.

The first excitement in my life came one day in Marchmonth. I was discussing with one of my friends the most efficient means of sharpening when the whole rack shuddered and lurched off its supports. It seemed to me as if the whole world were about to come to an end.
