How can I make money off my writing? It is the only thing I'm good at, and I'm nearly broke.

I'm starting to think that enrolling in university was a mistake, at least doing it the past year. I don't know anyone from my classes, I have lost almost all contact with my highschool friends because I don't use social media, my grades have dropped considerably, have no motivation, have to stare at a computer screen for hours. It's all so tiresome. I've even turned underweight, and I've been losing a lot hair during this period, just to learn almost nothing.
I don't even know how things will be once I get to work. I don't know why keep studying, if I will probably get replaced by a machine who can do a much better work than me in a few years.
Pretty much all of my social interections are here, I'm missing out on the college life, I'm not learning, my life is just getting worse.

I don't pretend to like books, I actually like them, but for some reason I still feel like a fraud. I feel incredibly dumb despite others thinking I'm smart, think that they only pretend I'm smart to laugh at me, or that they might someday find out I'm a fraud.

To be in a Passion you Good may Do
But no Good if a Passion is in you
The Whore & Gambler by the State
Licencd build that Nations Fate
The Harlots cry from Street to Street
Shall weave Old Englands winding Sheet
The Winners Shout the Losers Curse
Dance before dead Englands Hearse
Every Night & every Morn
Some to Misery are Born
Every Morn and every Night
Some are Born to sweet delight
Some are Born to sweet delight
Some are Born to Endless Night

I promised to myself that I wouldn't come back here till I had finished a book. It's been like 7 months and I haven't wrote a single page. Instead I keep getting new ideas for new books that seem so brilliant in my mind that I just think "I could never write something like that, I'd ruin it".
I can see the characters, can see their actions, but when I'm in front of the white screen I can't write it down.
What can I do?
