Oh, and how could I forget?! A thesaurus is one of the most useful things for a writer, in my opinion at least.

Here's what I always need when I write: 1. Microsoft Word on my computer 2. Inspiration 3. A thesaurus 4. Music of any sort 5. Willpower. As in, "I don't want to write this story anymore, but if I don't finish it I'll never get back to it." IDK, that's just me.

LOTS OF PAPER
a good idea and the will to stick at it- I usually get sick of the whole business after the 3rd chapter
Someone to do your chores, go to school and study instead of you [ so that the genius has time to work]
endless resources.
