Argh, I've never been any good at small talk. Which makes it that much harder to come up with anything in that vein for characters to say.
Especially in RP, where I can't do what a certain canon source Zodiac does and just elide all small talk ever. XD
Though otherwise RP-stuff is going well and I keep having to remind myself that there's a reason I'm about to take a break -- to avoid getting burned out rather than waiting until I *am*. and uploading icons to an unused journal is NOT productive, self.
