In 1930, she left home for being against the feudal family arranged marriage. In 1935 she published her masterpiece "The Field of Life and Death" in the name of "Xiao Hong" for the first time, which stirred the literary world at that time. In 1936, she went to Japan. She wrote the essay "Lonely Life" in Tokyo and the series poems "sand", etc. The next year, "The July 7th" Incident broke out, marking outbreak of anti-Japan war. Xiao Hong cared a lot about her motherland and returned to the motherland immediately. She threw himself into the anti-war literary career. In 1938, invited by Lee Gongpu, the leader of China Democracy Alliance, she left Wuhan for Linfen and taught at National Revolution University. She also attended Northwestern field service activities and propagandized anti-Japanese and national salvation. In Xi'an, Xiao Hong declined the invitation to Yan'an for a fiery life sent by her friends including Ding Ling, and chose another way of creation and life, which is more independent and lonely. After Experiencing the homeless and unstable life from Hubei Province to Sichuan, Xiao Hong arrived in Hong Kong in 1940, and soon published a novel "Ma Bole" and "The Biography of Hulanhe".
