By no means am I fantastic at breakaways, but for me it helps to just keep it simple. Personally, I usually use the same 2 or 3 different options frequently. Nothing extremely fancy whatsoever. I usually use:
1) Quick shot. I typically shoot high so being able to lift the puck well helps. It's frustrating when I mess up and hit the goalie in the stomach. Sometimes I try 5 hole if I notice its available / can get the goalie moving one way or another.
2) Deke to backhand. Being able to lift the puck well backhand consistently can be a great asset.
Also, try to learn from each attempt, especially against the same goalie. Sometimes you might notice things you can take advantage of like poor lateral movement, weak glove or blocker, or aggressiveness.
Again, I'm not the best at them and there are several people here that can give you much better advice. But for me, keeping it relatively simple and just being attentive works pretty well.
