How can I make a good profit by doing something in the english category, that isn’t teaching?

How can I make a good profit by doing something in the english, book region of things. I am in 10th grade, and I have heard from teachers that becoming an author is not a good idea, (What I was wanting to do) because you won’t make enough money to live unless you books hits bestsellers. So is there anything I could do in the realm of english, (that isn’t teaching!) that could give me a good profit and stay in the parts of things I would like to do.

How can I start writing a book based on my life?

I am a Junior in college for my bachelors degree in creative writing and English. I always dreamt of writing my own book based off my life and maybe even turn it into a series of books as I grow older. As much as I can see myself in the near future publishing my first book, I do not know where to begin. This question was asked by a student who wanted to remain anonymous.

Have you ever regretted becoming an author?

I have always wanted to be an author, but I am aware of how many writers give their all into their book and for whatever reason, are unable to get a publishing company to pick it up. Or else it flopped in sales and ended up not making enough money to make it worth printing, much less living comfortably off of.

Where do you get your inspiration when you are out of ideas?

When writer's block hits, what do you do to combat that? I find that oftentimes when I am writing, I'll run out of ideas for my story, abandon it, and start something new, only for the cycle to begin all over again.

Uncertanity in a career of an author

What is a career for someone who wants to be an author, but is afraid of the uncertainty of it? Careers have always been a difficult topic for me, also one that has changed over time. When I started thinking of a career as an author, I realized the talent but also love I had for something that holds no promises. The uncertainty of putting forth an idea you have put your heart and soul into and it never be published. I really want to write for a long time but have no idea if I should take the leap. To all the authors, what can I do to keep myself afloat while writing and/or how to extinguish these fears?

What is a good online community to post my own stories?

I am an aspiring artist and writer wanting to go into writing and animation. I have many different concepts for stories but I have no way to publish them in a way that would get me any sort of publicity. I would love it if someone could provide me with a free, online site that would allow for me to post my stories and at least try to get my name out there.

How much pressure should I put on choosing what I want to study at University? I am currently very drawn toward Psychology and English and I don't know which to focus more on.

I am a junior in high school. I would prefer not to go into education. I don't know whether to focus on English or Psychology and I'm worried that if I choose to focus on the wrong one, it will all go downhill.
