"Seldom a day goes by that I haven't done something — whether it's just take a little note or do a pencil edit. It's always there with me." The couple, married since 1960, lean on each other for writing advice. Like a good marriage, that practice has grown and changed through their years together. When once they read each other's work chapter-by-chapter or even paragraph-by-paragraph, they now wait until a manuscript has been completed. "We'd get in great arguments that other way," Kate said. Unlike what's sometimes necessary to a good marriage, Kate and Jim maintain they al­ ways tell each other the truth about each other's writing. "It's really hard when you love and live with this person and you know this person has spent a lot of time and emotional energy writing something, and you've got a criticism of it — it's really hard to say it, but you must," Jim said. "If Kate is reading something of mine and she tells me what I want to hear rather than what she believes — that's no help at all." An old newspaper reporter, Jim does plenty of research for his period novels. While in Salina, he wants to research an idea for a book based in a Kansas insane asylum during the 1930s. His book "The Special Prisoner" takes place during World War II and has a Salina-based scene. "I get a charge out of research," he said. "It's a way for me to do my own reporting." ^ t 7it •/ 7n •/ 7% •/ 7 M •/ •/ 7> •/ 7* 7* ^% •/ 7n •/ 7^ 7% •/ 7^ •/ 7^ 7 0tm* YEN CHINO Chinese Restsaurant DELIVERY 823-1685 Open 7 days a week Dine In & Carryout 540 S.Bfoadway» 823-2089 Family & Class Reunion Dinners BED & BREAKFAST k PINE DINING Call toll rmrorKmvalion $!M0 -l8l3 www.come.to/traderslodge Senior Citizen Specials Eirery NigKt 5-8 p.m. Call For Reservations 785-263-7336 Restaurant 205 N.E.Third, Abilene, Y&G]^\^ ^ www.kirby-house.coiii STEER 1400E.Iron •Salina RIMTAURANT 823-9550 E.
