Here are some easier-to-remember and faster-to-type links for creating new Google Docs. As of Nov 5, 2018, these all work.

Note that if you are signed in to Google with multiple accounts (say, personal and work in the same browser), it might not ask you which account you would like to use and may immediately create a document under your first account.

  • If you're using Google Apps for Business, the URL is slightly different: https://docs.google.com/a/your.domain.com/document/create – Simon East Jan 15 '15 at 8:31

Edit: Links are now broken.

I realize that this question is as old as the original answer is outdated. The new URL for document creation is https://drive.google.com/document/create, likewise with other new Drive-related files.

Per QZ, all these URLs now work:

  • Forms: form.new, forms.new
  • Sheets: sheet.new, sheets.new, spreadsheet.new
  • Sites: site.new, sites.new, website.new
  • Slides: slides.new, deck.new, presentation.new

You can also create a document with a given document name:
