Found a slightly bent metal ruler that worked as a good straight edge when the pen was held at a high angle. Although not fully straight, it worked A LOT better than the DVD case. I also gave up on shading the boxes in the plotted perspective exercise partway through since I was short on time.
I made sure to watch the videos and review the notes before tackling the organic perspective exercise again, and managed to make my lines decisively save for a few instances where my pen accidentally hit the paper while ghosting. I'm aware of the curved lines on some of the boxes, and made sure to perform the movements with my shoulder, but it didn't seem to help by much in this case.
