    Default as well as

    Which are correct:

    1-I don't have any free time today, nor tomorrow.

    2-I don't have any free time today, and also tomorrow.


    3-I don't have any free time today, and tomorrow as well.

    I am pretty sure that the first one works. I don't think 2 and 3 are acceptable in formal English, but maybe they work in conversation.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    None of these work.
    1 is the closest, while 2 and 3 are wrong.

    I don't have any free time today or tomorrow. (There is no need for more than this.)
    I don't have any free time today. I don't any free time tomorrow either.
    I don't have any free time today, nor do I have any free time tomorrow. (Formal and not very natural)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
