What are the chances of becoming a famous writer?

I have a passion for writing but i don't know if i can make a living off of just being a writer, so can anyone tell me if i could live off being a famous writer anyway...

The odds of becoming a famous writer are slim, but that doesn't have to keep you from writing. According to editors and publishers, chances of being published are about 1 to 2%. This is because they accept and publish 1 to 2 out of hundred of manuscripts they get. However, you could still try your best because you never know what you could be.

Even the best writers (Derek Landy, the Golden God), may not be as popular as they deserve. Many writers 'jump the shark' so they can continue earning money from loyal fans who want to know how the story ends. *cough* Riordan *cough*
