hour(s) after hour(s)

Post by grammarguy » Fri Dec 29, 2017 6:52 am

I am going to make up two similar sentences below.

(1) You shouldn't spend hour after hour working on your project. You need to relax.

(2) You shouldn't spend hours after hours working on your project. You need to relax.

Do I need to pluralize "hour"? Please help me. Thank you for your help.
