    going to or will be

    Is it Ok to say:

    "I will be doing my home-work tomorrow"

    Can I change "will be" to "going to" in order to emphasize the ongoing action in the future?

    "I am gonna be ( going to be) doing my home-work tomorrow"

    "Im going to do my homework tomorrow,"
    is easier and more concise than your examples and conveys pretty much the same message.
    Note that homework is one word. Avoid using gonna,wanna, etc., in written English.

    "Pretty much the same meanig" does that mean that there will be a slight difference between my examples? Is it about emphasizing the actiong or just stating the fact that I will do my home-work?
