Whenever I lineart something, it seems a bit wobbly. Any advice?

If you use photoshop, a good way is to sketch the lineart first, then trace over it using the "pen" tool. That helps alot getting good looking curved lines and straight ones.

I use Elements too! The best way I've found is when you are drawing the line art (make sue you have a sketch layer first), zoom in are far as you can. This Tutorial is really helpful too (It says it a coloring tut, but she shows you how she does her lines too).

I use to use Photoshop elements as well and had the same issue. Not too long ago I switched to CS 4 and no longer have that issue. I would recommend if you cant afford to buy a new program that you try using higher dpi as well as a larger canvas. Once you finish your line art, you can scale it down.

It won't stop the wobble but when scaled down, it is less noticeable.

What program are you using? PaintTool SAI has a really good stabiliser that gives much smoother lines, but if you're looking for a free alternative, I suggest FireAlpaca, it's free and the stabiliser works as well as SAI's. :D
Another option to consider is using no lineart. When I just started digital art my lineart was super sloppy (you can't imagine...) so I did lots of lineless drawings, it took the stress off having to make a meticulous lineart, and it still looks pretty good (: My lineart's gotten much better (it actually doesn't hurt to look at it anymore) but I still prefer lineless because it's so hard to make super clean lineart OTL
