I was struggling to find a good title for a fiction I write, and a found this sentence in the english subtitles of a song. I'd like to know if it's a valid sentence as a standalone, or if it needs to be a part of a full-lenght sentence.

Thanks for considering my request.

    It should probably be "Even so, we'll keep walking." but unless one of the scholarly regulars on this site dispute it, it is a complete sentence. – Kristina Lopez Mar 7 '18 at 19:32
  • It's fine, and a valid sentence, but please insert a comma after "so": "Even so, we'll keep walking". It's actually quite a thought-provoking title. – BillJ Mar 7 '18 at 19:34
  • Yes, I forgot the comma when writing my question, sorry. Thank you for your quick answers. – Aël Mar 7 '18 at 20:17

    A book title doesn't have to be a sentence. In fact, probably fewer than 10% are. – Hot Licks Mar 7 '18 at 20:59

    Just to note: the comma isn’t actually required as such; you can go without it. If you leave it out, though, you risk the reader parsing the sentence as meaning ‘even [so that we’ll keep walking]’ instead of ‘[even so] [we’ll keep walking]’. I agree it’s quite a nice title. – Janus Bahs Jacquet Mar 7 '18 at 21:00

If you're looking for an Eats Shoots and Leaves effect (Google the title), your proposed title is pretty good as is.

Otherwise, the answer by @James Greene is a sound bet.
