I write everything in Markdown with ia Writer Pro on macOS and iOS. Its only drawback is no share sheet. Can you use existing automation tools to provide share-sheet functionality? I will be happy to pay you in dollars, or DW points, or jewelry, or donation to your charity of choice. 
 
On my iPad, I've got Draft, Workflows, and ia Writer. I want to select text in a variety of iOS apps and send it to ia Writer Pro as if there were an ia Writer share sheet. (Apps I use often include Safari, Chrome, iBooks, Kobo, KyBook 2, Libby, Instapaper) 
 
I already have an "open in IA Writer" action for Drafts. 
 
The tricky part is: can Workflows reach inside Drafts to trigger the "open in IA Writer" action?

Part of my daily healthwork routine is silent meditation. I avoided meditating for decades because I thought I had to be a serene person to do it. I learned otherwise. Using audio guidance or timer, I concentrate on my breathing. I become my breathing body. My breath is a constant companion, always happening until I’m dead.

Concentrating on my breath helps me relax and it also reminds me that everyone on the planet is also a breathing body. This commonality calms the terror attendant on our current moment. My ideology, my fears, my impairments aren’t magicked away, but I am always a breathing body, just like everyone else.

It’s called meditation practice because that concentration is a skill. While I’m meditating I find myself thinking about the past or planning for the future. This is the magic moment. When I notice I’m thinking, I softly name it, and then return to my breathing.

I learned to meditate via an 8-week MBSR class, mindfulness based stress reduction, offered by my therapist. Since then, I’ve loved using Insight Timer, the meditation tool for iOS and Android. You do have to create a login, but they haven't spammed me. Insight Timer has tons of useful features, but at its most basic it’s got a great timer, with lovely bells, background white noise, and finely adjustable intervals. When you’re online, Insight offers hundreds of guided meditations, including introductory lessons for absolute beginners. (Other audio available: yoga guidance, Dharma talks, affirmations.) Excellent search functions let me bookmark (for example) just the 10–19 minutes long, secular, male voice, meditations designed for pain.

All of the audio content is also available from this web site.
