I am, as they say, lolling like mad  
Step 1: Go to http://iwl.me/
Step 3: Click "analyze."

When I actually use my own writing, I get different answers:

My 2004 NaNo (an Exalted story of the First Age, using the previous incarnations of my game's characters): Neil Gaiman.

My 2006 NaNo (The story about magic coming back and a ton of people dying that I won with, and posted a bit here): Lewis Carroll.

Five Years After (A story about two people having coffee 5 years after college): Lewis Carroll again.

Is the Life (A story I wrote for a writing contest in high school. It has vampires): Chuck Palahniuk.

The Gates of Horn and Ivory (My 2005 NaNo, unfinished): Anne Rice.

The First Step (A short story using the same characters as the previous entry, but otherwise unconnected): Chuck Palahniuk again

Watcher's Eyes (A story set in the world of the novel I was writing in high school): Lewis Carroll again.

Fallen One (A story about the trial of an angel): Dan Brown. I guess it's the angel bit?

Shadow Realm (A bit of random, pointless drivel, in my opinion): Ursula K. LeGuin

The Mask and the Mirror (One of the old "Aaron Knight" stories I wrote. Tentatively connected to the same world The Watcher's Eyes is, but only in unimportant backstory): William Gibson.

Some of those stories I still like, and some I read and cringe hard enough to break bones. Nonetheless,

The most hilarious thing, though. If you go back to that website and just type, "lolololololol" over and over again, guess what it tells you?

William Shakespeare.

Perhaps there is more to internet trolling than we think.

So I used some excerpts from an lj rpg I'm in. I used two different ones, but both from the same character.

On the first, I got Stephenie Meyer.

On the second, I got Stephen King.

What is this I don't even. O.O

Though, I guess it makes sense. They are both authors I've read extensively, so it would make sense that I would emulate them. And yet, WTF. They are SOOOOO different.

Did the first one mention vampires? I wonder if that's the tipping point.

Though I suppose it could equally be Anne Rice.

You just had to mention Shakespeare and trolling, didn't you. I lost a good half hour of my afternoon putting this monstrosity together.

Monsters of yore, which under bridges lurked
And fed on goats, or so the story goes.
On modern fora leave the virtuous irked
Through poor manner and vitriolic prose
Though moderators; men with icy stare
Patrol their boards 'til hooligans are gone
To greener grounds the vexing throngs repair
And juvenile pursuits begin anon
Yet lest they harm us with their wanton hate
Or images of freakish cats with text.
Behold! They are mere boys of pallid pate,
In basements housed; eternally unsexed.
They rail against the world, and yet amount
To motes of dust, too pitiful to count.

Which, Slarnos, comes out to resemble the writing of Mary Shelley, apparantly :P

My old stuff comes out as Dan Brown, and my newer writing says Ray Bradbury.

Your internets, sir.

Hahaha, this is amusing.

My everyday stuff and short stories gave me a result of Vonnegut. My NaNo stuff gave me Stephen King. Samples from one of my RPs I play in gave me Tolstoy, and another (Star Wars) gave me Bradbury.

In meta news, this entry is written in the style of Dan Brown. :p

I keep getting Gertrude Stein, but I've never read her. Though my outlier was Leo Tolstoy.
