"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask."

Prompt #39 is a painting prompt. Set up a piece of watercolor paper or drawing paper, watercolor paints, two jars of water, the thinnest round or pointed round brush you have and a paper towel to blot the water. Place a drop of water in each paint pan or just spray the entire paints with a spritz of water. Dip your brush in water, then blot lightly.
Dab your brush in one color of paint and "draw" a line with paint. I'm right handed, and I painted these lines by turning the journal clockwise so that I am painting left to right but on the paper that's bottom to top. Find what works for you. You might paint right to left, left to right, or at an angle to the paper. Practice until you find the most comfortable way to paint a line.
Try to paint each fluid line without stopping. So I paint a green line, for example, and a few other green lines on the page at various spots. Then perhaps an orange line, and a few others. My idea today is not to have the paint run together, but to have unique lines which simply overlay. So try not to touch one painted line with another unless the first line is fairly dry (maybe 5 min later). We are not painting stripes. Just delicate lines.
This is line practice, with a brush.
If you do not have watercolors available, you can do this with a pen. Take a thin marker and practice drawing lines that are parallel. Not ruler straight, but parallel. You can use different colored markers to achieve this sort of effect.
