Thinks she is not a popular writer because of her "habit and determination to write only to please myself, irrespective of readers"; it does not trouble her that she makes little money from her writings; feels she doesn't yet know enough about life to write a novel; "life is too serious to be misrepresented as in 'Miss Brown'...So I am bound to be unpopular, and you must just put up with it. And so must mama."
