DIY project gone wrong correction (thx bob22)

Finally got my link correct to post pic. As I said previously, I have been working on building this retaining wall with a flowing rock stairway. It was supposed to look as if a river of rocks was cascading down the slope providing a stair way to the top. Instead I have almost dug a trench through the slope. I have been working on it for a couple of years, but am determined to get it done this year. If someone can please advise me on how to build the stairs using the rocks (I really don't want to use cement). I virtually have tons of rocks at my disposal.

Speaking as a pure amateur in stonework, it looks like you are on the right track.

What in your opinion is wrong with where you are at?
