Would this be an o.k. sentence to use in my essay?

This would still be the closest I had ever been to someone with their name used in the same sentence as the word “famous.”

Or should I just say, "This would still be the closest I had ever been to someone famous" The reason is, is because the person wasn't exactly world-wide famous but she was well-known in the city itself. Is that still considered famous?

  • EnglishIII -

    Yes, that's considered famous, although 'very well known' works, too.

    I'm wondering about your use of 'would' though. Are you writing about a possibility? Or a reality?
