That's a good start!
It would be even better if you liked to read action/adventure novels, because those are the kind I write. I would very much like to have been born Ernest Hemingway, but I wasn't. I live with that. I suppose we all have to live with disappointments, vague or otherwise. I also wish I was clever enough to write non-fiction. I do have gifts, however. Skills, even. The trick, I think, is the ability to recognise these gifts and pursue them as best we can. We certainly shouldn't leave them laying around doing nothing. And with that in mind I pursued mine. The most notable was the quest to have someone like my books enough to publish them, paying me money in the process. And that eventually happened.
