    Tomorrow I'm going to work...

    Hello, I am searching for the proper preposition. If I have to start my work at 8 o'clock, can I say: Tomorrow I'm going to work for 8 o'clock. ??? Thanks.

    For a time, it's at.
    For a day, it's on.

    ON Monday, I have to be there AT 8 a.m.
    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.

    Of course I knew on and at, but I wanted to say something different, but I think it does not exist in English at all.
