This will be my 5th go at A/A. Not my favorite. I see a high probability of a genre mash in my future…

I got Goonies vibes here, Nod...Smile

I got Group 44: Mystery/Antisocial/Anesthesiologist

I feel pretty good about the genre but other than that I'm a little worried. This may be the wrong place to post this but how exactly are we supposed to use the subject? I read the FAQs and the participation guide but I still don't seem to understand. 

Could someone explain? I'm new to this particular challenge so I don't think I've done one with a subject before. 

Thank you in advance and good luck eveyone! :)

Also, hi fellow NCer!

 
For me, what it brings to mind is a religious service held outdoors or in an old church. Of course, there are different interpretations of revival and different directions you could take with it, but growing up in the southern Bible Belt, that's what I immediately think of. 

Hi there!! You'll love this contest and these forums, I think.

It's hard to give a definitive answer, but basically anti-socialness needs to be in your story somehow. Maybe your main character is anti-social, maybe they are dealing with someone who is anti-social, maybe their mother's cousin's friend was anti-social and it is in some way influencing the plot of the story. 

There have been subjects that translate into settings, some that translate into characterizations, and some that fit better as actions. Whichever it is, your story has to incorporate it. I hope that helps!
