This girl I've been texting doesn't give me much to work with. I'll text her and basically I might as well be texting myself. She'll respond to questions but not add anything.
(after I took a while to text back)
Me - Sorry my mom made me clean my room so I was distracted from texting back.
Her - It's OK. I forgive u
Me - Gracias :D
Her - De nada :)
Me - How was the movie last night?
Her - It was ok but I didn't get to see the whole thing because my laptop kept freezing
Me - Oh jeez. Are you gonna try and finish it tonight?
Her - Yeah definitely.
I stopped texting because I didn't feel like trying to carry this convo on by myself
Her - OK well good night I guess
Me - Goodnight
Her - Wow thanks so much for texting me back earlier. That was a really fvcking stimulating conversation. Bye
Like what the hell... I'm not gonna try and keep a conversation going if she doesn't try either. How do I handle this?

It's hard to guess what might be the issue after seeing that you've known her for over a year.
Have your conversations with her always been like this? Is she shy at all?
You could try asking more questions, finding that thing that'll get her talking (because we all have one), but that's assuming that she's shy. I know with me, it would always take a lot of coaxing to get me to open up.
But if she's not really that shy, she could just be uninterested I suppose - although it doesn't seem like it, or else she would've just let the conversation die instead of getting mad at you for not replying. She wouldn't be texting you first either if she wasn't interested.
You two probably just have different ways of communicating and you need to learn how to see eye-to-eye. Maybe she's not much of a texter. Have you ever called her? Or maybe she prefers to talk in person. I think those would be more likely.2
