I was thinking more like:

 oldest item of the list
 older item
 recent item
 most recent item
 Most recent...
 Start New Write (or some other wording which makes sense in all languages,
so that the default `tooltip` shows both the activity name and that it will
create a new instance (Write from Start?)]

Right after the default action, I would place the Most recent... option so
as to give it more visibility and be quick to choose, and not be subject to
move around on the option list between activities which have more and less
