Traits of a Successful Writer (of Romance or otherwise)

I was looking around to see how fiction writers make a living. And as you may suspect Romance writers sell the most books. I would like to write them, just to be writing something that makes people happy .. but it's just not a fantasy that I can get into..

Here is something from Anne Gracie:

..... What do I need to be a romance writer? Can anybody do it?

1. A Curious and Creative Mind
2. A Love of Storytelling
3. The Ability to Be Professional … When Necessary
