I can't converse!

I've tried to write conversation, dialogue and discussion but without success. I cannot get it right! My characters seem unconvincing, their speech fatuous despite scenarios which should be arresting and make for compulsive listening. But no! I cannot write conversation.

You are not alone, my dear friend. Verisimilitude is vital to good literature, and some characters should be mute.

Sure you can seize up the contradictions of human mind: what is said and what is actually thought deep down within your character...
