The writer tried writing a 3rd book. How is that SO wrong?

I may be wrong here, but I think that "tried" (rather than "was trying") requires a perfective verb, which would be "spróbował" here.

The writer was trying to write his third book.Why is his not implied in this case as it was in Patrzył na zegarek?
