Draw Lewis structures for each of the following ion: CO3 (2-)

I tried this method below, i do not know where am i going wrong, please help me understand this concept for ions.

Valence Electrons 4e- + 18e- = 22e-
Noble gas Config 8e- + 24e- = 32e-
Total 32e- 22e- = 10e-
Covalent bonds 10e-/2 = 5
Non-Bonding Pairs 22e- - 10e- = 12e-
