About Me

Kerry Schafer, M.Ed., Master Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, MBTI Practitioner

Kerry Schafer, M.Ed., Master Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach, MBTI Practitioner

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.

Swimming North in creativity coaching with Kerry Schafer opens doors and windows to the universe. Aha moments come quick and fast with Kerry’s gentle guidance, and your confidence will grow three sizes from her observations.
— ~Lael Braday, writer and book reviewer
Kerry Schafer is one of those exceptional people you just want to be around. Wise, funny, and insightful. I made progress because showing up to her sessions were a uniquely delightful experience, her fun follow-ups were creative and inspiring, she was intuitive enough to see things that I missed. If you’re not getting to your creative passion, you don’t respond to most coaching models, and you like fun, I highly recommend you give Kerry a try.
