When the Holy Spirit is your ghost who fills you not only with the "right" wisdom to overcome any writer's block, but also enable you to write things that you wouldn't normally be able to do on your own.
Instead of praying that your editor would be gracious enough to ghostwrite for you, it's wiser to depend on the Ghost-Writer instead to do the "write thing"—He's available 24/7/365 and it's free.

A 90's TV show that set the current meaning for "ghost writer" (person who write lyrics to songs but remains anonymous). It was based on a ghost who would "pick up" letters from places such as keyboards or street signs and re-arrange them to communicate with a bunch of teenagers to help them with their daily lives.

N. One of the best early '90s childrens TV show. It was a bit low-budget, and corny, but very addicting. About a group of junior high students that try and solve mysteries with the help of their white, dot, ghost-like friend. They communicate with him by writing words out.
