Writing Together

The Penis Chronicles presents, “Writing Together”

My older boy and I started a comic together. He had asked me a while ago and I believe I shared our intentions with you during one of the weekend coffee shares. This is the story of how it all started, the beginning of our comic. My oldest boy had been writing a comic at school with a friend and wanted to do another one at home. So, we came up with characters and each wrote a one page intro. My story fits into 7 comic boxes Here it is:


Insistence: A Dragon Rider was born

The last free dragon shed a tear into a pond of tears from millions of dragons before. The tear became a flames of hope that crystalized into a tear shaped egg.

Years passed. All memories of dragons, especially friendly dragons, passed into shadows and no more dragon riders walked the earth. It was then that Cinder was born from the tear shaped egg. She was born with a dragon heart and she had all the dragon memories. She also had the power to control water.

Alone she grew into a fierce warrior with one goal: free the dragons.

She knew that she was ready to set forth and achieve her goal when her mind merged with a particular dragon, Blaze. The merging allowed them to communicate and guide each other through a sightless journey to each other. Urgency spurred her. Dragon and dragon rider would perish if they didn’t reach each other before Cinder’s 17th birthday.


It has been a lot of fun and a great bonding experience for us.
