Yes.
Hello Kekel and Feebs!Emotion: smile

I don't understand why they are correct..

In the first sentence it says that the person is going to sleep that moment, why isn't it in the continous form?
And what about the last sentence? It doesn't that it is a habit, I mean, the sentence doesn't say that you do that everyday..why isn't it in the continous form either?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

You really can't judge any of these sentences without some kind of context. For example, these contexts.

It's 10pm. Let me tell you what I do every evening. I go to sleep now.
I love Mary. Let me tell you what I do every Sunday. I go to visit her.
Let me tell you what I do every summer. I go to stay at the beach.


You seem to be thinking of different contexts, in which the present continuous would be better.

Best wishes, Clive

..but, without a context, would those sentences be correct?

Thanks for answering, Feebs!Emotion: smile

..but, what about that sentence? I don't understand that 'now' there..
It shows that at this moment you go to sleep.
But, can you use the word 'now' in an habit? Emotion: smile
