Zettelkasten Quick Entry with iPhone Back Tap

I wanted a way to automate entering writing ideas and thoughts into my Zettelkasten system via 1Writer. Yes others use Drafts and then migrate content, but that seems like a step I wanted to avoid much of the time. Enter back tap on iOS 14, which you can set to trigger a shortcut.

Today I'm going to walk you through this shortcut. Pay special attention to the section on how to create a file with Shortcuts and then name it, because it never feels intuitive to me and I always have to struggle with it a bit.
