Attribute Error

After running the script I get the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "journal.py", line 40, in <module>
  File "journal.py", line 21, in initialize
    db.create_tables([Entry], safe=True)

AttributeError: type object 'Entry' has no attribute '_meta'

Note: I called my file journal.py

Any ideas?

[MOD: added ```python formatting -cf]
