This page is intended to give you the opportunity to share writing questions. It can be about grammar, wording, sources, or ideas.
To give an example, I will start with a common stumbling block: when to use "who" and when to use "whom".
First, we must distinguish between subject and object. In the sentence: Peter saw Paul, Peter is subject and Paul is object, which is why the sentence could also be: Peter saw him.
"Whom" is used whenever we have an object case:
Whom did you see? I saw him.
You gave your book to whom? To him
Elizabeth was anxious to see Jane, whom she had very much missed during her stay in Longbourn. (Elizabeth was anxious to see her; she had missed her).
Second, there are cases when the object of one clause is the subject of another. In such situations, the subject case takes precedence over the object case.
Ex. Elizabeth thinks about him.
versus Elizabeth thinks about who will marry her. In this case "who" is subject of "will marry."
A simple trick is to try replacing who/whom by he/him. If you must say "he," then you must use "you"; if you must use "him," then it must be "whom."

I have always found language fascinating. Even before I could read, my father used to invent stories for me (instead of reading traditional ones) and he would weave with words strange and captivating universes, inspiring heroes, magical beasts, formidable foes, edge-of-your-seat plots, and absolutely splendid adventures. Although neither he nor I could remember these extraordinary tales as time passed, the enchantment he created fueled my passion for reading and led ultimately to my desire to write. He taught me there is real power in words and good expression matters.
