Is it correct to say or write that

I tried a new time but it is still not working

past simple because I only did one essay today(however it is true that I made many yesterday.)


You should say:

I tried another time but it is not working.

new time does not have a meaning that you intend.

Also I would leave out still since this indicates a continuation of some state (success or failure). However you said you were successful before, but not this time.
