    strange part of sentence.

    "You know," I ventured, "when I saw your perform, I got the feeling that singing lets you jump over the fences of your life the way writing does for me."

    Please, notice to the end of that sentence.

    1) How "the way writing does for me" is related to the other parts of sentence? What is the meaning of this?

    2) If 'does' (......does for me) acts as a verb, what is the subject of it? How to find its subject?

    3) What is common name (as grammatical rules) of this part? Here, with 'this part' I want to indicate at "the way writing does for me."

    Re: strange part of sentence.

    Is this exercise from a textbook?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
