Inorganic Doubt

I know the Correct structure of N2O3 but I was thinking why can't its structure be like this in the image.

Check the total number of valence electrons available in N2O and used by you in lewis dot structure?
Total valence electrons available in N2O = 16
In your lewis dot structure it is more than 16.
