Richard, I've never had a reliably steady hand. So, I use a mahl stick to rest my hand or even help to guide the brush for long, straight lines. Purchase one at any good art supply (or make one).
Many artists also use rigger brushes for long, thin lines (named for painting the rigging in ships). They have long bristles which hold more thin paint. Sign painters often use these. With a little practice, it's not very hard.
One can also use a palette knife to get wonderful edges and lines. I've even read that folks use credit cards or razor blades. Artists are a pretty inventive lot. Welcome to WC.
