Okay, sorry i'm getting used to the terms for this chapter. So, the lone pair electrons would be the electrons not shared with another atom (on the lewis structure it would be the dots on the outside of the element letters right)?
The lines represent a bond between two atoms. Drawing a line on atom to represent a lone pair would not represent what the structure actually looks like since there is no bond. So when drawing lone pairs, just use the dots.
