Guy, ffs. I'll curse you out and everyone that keeps posting this shit. Degrees are only worth what you put into them. Fuck, make that degree work for you. I meet people who have degrees from all different areas of study. Just because you have a degree in English doesn't mean you can't work in another field. It doesn't make you any less of entrepreneur. If you have to ask how to make money, then you really don't deserve it.

I'd suggest practicing what are known as "throat kegels" for better employment options.

This. There are always jobs that require knowledge of english/spelling/grammar but within the business community. Unfortunately they never have a banner for lib majors as a title.

It's what I'm doing and I have an English major. It's not bad, but of course you can't be an autist.

Im 29 and I just started school, and Im majoring in English.
I just enjoy English. I love how mellifluous it can be, and I think how incredible it must feel to put pen to paper and write a goddamn book.

The question you should have asked yourself is not "what is the best time to do A, now or later?". The question you should have asked yourself is "what is my best option out of {A,B,C,D,..} at this moment.

However, if you feel that going back to school for an English major was the option that will make you the happiest in the long run, then by all means my best wishes. I'm just shitposting because I'm bored and nothing I say should be taken serious.

This is why I both want to and am terrified of going back to school. Only 26 though, and it'd probably be for applied physics, CE/EE or something though, not English.
