When the "queued for crafting" writs require more materials than available in bag/bank/craftbag, somehow indicate that in the WritWorthy window.

Maybe even prevent those writs from being queued, since they cannot be crafted without a shopping trip, anyway.

Zig says:
WritWorthy was never designed to be an inventory manager, and I don't want to start down that path.
A master crafter really should maintain a deep inventory of materials. But yeah, it is indeed annoying to run out of Leviathan Scrimshaw or Hakeijo right in the middle of a master writ run.
But I'm in no hurry to add any inventory-scanning code to WritWorthy. Such code opens up a new world of problems such as attaching inventory/loot event listeners for when the player has acquired the necessary materials, or worse, gotten rid of a material that was necessary for an already-queued writ. Then there's the issue of deciding which of the three Hakeijo-using writs to disable when the player has only two Hakeijo.
