Ok, to actually write: Creativity, imagination, originality, and brains
To become a writer: Guts, perseverance, a tough heart, and hope
To get your book to the top: an editor, a publisher, good reviews, and a wide fan base

Good luck!

Just a good imagination, a sense of humor and you are done!
Maybe a bit of creativity and all the essentials (publisher, fanbase, etc)

I think you need nice imagine! (Not just fantasy lol) And know how to write that people will get excited, want to follow you book, etc. I mean interesting! If it too boring and way too professional I don't people think want to read boring/uninteresting stuff , You might try write some story on internet like qfeast too! When people read it, they sure give you some feed back! (Not sure they ALL would give you or not.. XD)
