Writers usually misuse the words WE and US when adding a noun after them. Take a look at the following phrases:

something we writers struggle with every day

something us writers struggle with every day

When reading those phrases it’s not easy to determine which one is correct. The trick is to omit the noun when reading the phrases.

something we struggle with every day

something us struggle with every day

Now it’s easy to see that WE is the right word to use.
