    Default Timing vs time

    Hi,

    Question:
    Should I use "time or timing" in my sentences?


    Sentence1:
    I will visit you tomorrow. However, the time / timing is not certain.
    Sentence2:
    I will visit you tomorrow. If the time / timing changes, I will call you.


    Thanks

    "timing" is used in sentences like 'His intentions were good, but his timing was bad.'

    Sentence1:
    I will visit you tomorrow. However, the time / timing is not certain.
    Sentence2:
    I will visit you tomorrow. If the time / timing changes, I will call you.


    Thanks
