“Whereas” vs. “Where As”

While editing The Curse of Judas I stumbled upon this conundrum.  So I did a little research.

Whereas

If you can substitute the word “while” then it is okay to use “whereas” as one word.  If you cannot, then use “where as” as two words.

I stumbled upon a very interesting blog post while I was researching.  If you want to learn more about the history of “whereas”, head over to the link below.

Happy writing my friends!
