Writing from Barcelona

Dear professor Murakami,
my name is Anna. I'm writing from Barcelona I admire your work and I've read several books from you. I would like to thank you to build up this special atmosphere and worlds.
My question is related about your working process. Do you write everyday? Do you start writing before you have the plot or are the characters the ones who build it.
How can you get your characters?
I would love to make an interview to publish in a catalan newspaper. It would be a pleasure and a wonderful gift.

Dear Anna,

Just short answers. I work everyday without skipping. I’m a hard working guy. I do not have a plot before I write. Characters pop up in my mind, out of nowhere, while I am writing stories. Everything is simple and easy.

How is Barcelona? I’m missing your beautiful city.
