How do I learn to be a better talker?

People tell me I'm a good listener, but that's only good for half a conversation. I want to learn how to be a good talker. Where do I begin?

My fiend sometimes asks me to talk to her when she's tired, and I find myself completely at a loss for words. When it comes to contributing to a conversation, I do just fine if there's the usual exchange of questions, but when I'm expected to start it off or talk about something at length, I often get completely lost. How do I work on this? (Caveat: I don't really like talking about politics or current events.)
