You can prevent fraction scaling *everywhere* by setting the 
FractionBoxOptions->{AllowScriptLevelChange->False} option at the global scope.  
You can find the AllowScriptLevelChange option in the Option Inspector, set the 
scope, and apply it.

You could also apply it selectively to each one of the cells containing the 
fractions you care about.

But there is no way to selectively apply it to just these things created by the 
Writing Assistant palette.
