    have to or having to

    "I have to work a lot."

    OR

    "I'm having to work a lot."

    Do we emphasize things when we use the present progressive in such a context?

    Re: have to or having to

    I am not a teacher.


    The difference I hear is that the first is general, and the second, specific.

    The way my situation is these days, I have to work a lot.

    There must be an easier way to do this; I'm having to work a lot, here.
