Predilection and Propensity (noun)

“Predilection is almost the same as preference. So you have a predilection for wearing black. Or a predilection for peanut butter on Cruskits. Propensity, on the other hand, is an inclination or tendency. Like someone might have a propensity to blame people for his mistakes. Or a propensity to make on air gaffes that are demeaning to women.”

And to hear Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing, check out this week’s Episode 115 of our podcast, So you want to be a writer.
