I'm Kerry Schafer, (pen name Kerry Anne King), and I know how much it hurts to be blocked from a creative calling. My mission is to help you define and reach your writing goals with enthusiasm and joy.
Today I’m a bestselling author, but I spent a large chunk of my life putting everything and everyone else before my writing, not understanding that my need to write is exactly that: a need. Not a luxury, or a frivolous waste of time, but a process as vital to my well being as food.
It took the sudden, tragic death of my husband to teach me that writing needs to happen now, not in some nebulous future. And it took a lot of years after that to learn how to embrace my own unique writing process and to get to my writing consistently—and with joy.
This is what I want to share with you.
I offer a unique approach to coaching, combining the wealth of self-knowledge accessible through the Myers-Briggs Temperament Indicator with the mindful, empowering techniques of Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching. I also include elements of mind, body, spirit health such as sleep, nutrition, and exercise for a clearer mind and improved attention.
As a writer, I have published both traditionally and independently, so I can work with you on character, plot, pacing, and even creative marketing. I do NOT read and critique but can certainly refer you to editors who perform this service.
