How can you easily toggle the Ink preference pane setting "Write Anywhere"?

With this script you can toggle the Write Anywhere setting on and off, however it opens the System Preferences in the background:

tell application "System Preferences"
    reveal (pane id "")
end tell
tell application "System Events"
            tell application process "System Preferences"
                click checkbox "Allow me to Ink in any application" of group 1 of tab group 1 of window "Ink"
            end tell
end tell

I use it for toggling WriteAnywhere from the "Radial Menu" of my Wacom tablet.
