Thanks to everyone who participated in this week's Q: What Would You Buy With a 7-Figure Book Deal? Some great responses—some sensible, some awesomely ridiculous. One thing seems to be clear: Most would quit their day jobs to focus on writing. Here are the winners of a free 1-year subscription to Writer's Digest.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this week's Q: What Would You Buy With a 7-Figure Book Deal? Some great responses—some sensible, some awesomely ridiculous. One thing seems to be clear: Most would quit their day jobs to focus on writing.

Here are the winners of a free 1-year subscription to Writer's Digest:

Randomly selected winner:
dixichick: My dream has always been to build libraries in the communities where I live, because reading is an integral part of my life and the earlier you get kids reading the sooner they develop a love of stories & imagination, a global perspective, and so on.

Most creative response winner (and this was a tough decision because several were so good):
koprime: I would buy an ice cream truck. And park it outside!

Special shout out to StevePantol. Though he didn't win, I did enjoy his response "The first thing I’d buy would be drinks for my now-ex co-workers."

Thanks for playing. I hope to be able to do more giveaways from time to time.
