    explanation for grammar

    "I'm going to be working all day tomorrow. I won't have time to go shopping."

    OR

    "I will be working all day tomorrow. I won't have time to go shopping."

    Would there be any major difference between these sentences? Is the first one more appropriate because it's based on the fact that it's on the way and it has to do more with certainty?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    There's no difference in meaning. But the first sentence wouldn't be appropriate in formal prose (e.g., when writing an academic paper).
