Fellow readers and friends,
We are few days away to celebrate a new year, 2018! If I were to describe my 2017, it was rejections, eye-opening, hopeful, eventful, emotional, freedom, wise and lovely. The events happened this year are mostly work related and there are some personal stuff but manageable. Hopefully.
It is the year where I quit my 2 years job as a Associate/ Content Editor. Then, I had a very short career break for 4 months. Where I mostly used to write more and explore more of my creative side. Then, I was hired to work in an investment bank and enjoying my time learning in the HR department.
2017 also quite memorable because I went to travel alone to Kuching and really enjoyed myself there.
I managed to publish two e-books:
1. Ally And The Daily Prompt (March 2017)
2. The Thirty Days (June 2017)
My e-books are free and available in different formats. Do support me by leaving a rating in Goodreads and share it with your friends and family!
You can find my Goodreads page through here: Ally Mare Goodreads
All my book projects are currently on halt and my writing time has been tremendously cut down. I am mostly busy with work right now. I will try my best to spend my time in writing!

WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2018
Other than hoping all the good things, I don’t really have anything else to ask. I will just be busy with work, movies, buying books that I have no time to read, meeting new faces, travelling, and hopefully a partner? Exciting isn’t it?
That’s all for now. I wish you all the best in 2018. To me, entering a new year is just the same. It’s not about having a resolution or having the perfect plan but its how I would spend my time in the best way I can. I do have plans and I’m working on it but ultimately, I want to enjoy every moment that I have with the people around me, the time for myself, and do the things that I want. It’s much more interesting that way, isn’t it?
That’s all for now. I wish you all a happy new year!
