No TEXT data shown using sqlite3

I made this code based off the one taught in the videos.

from peewee import *
import datetime
import sys

db = SqliteDatabase('diary.db')


class Diary(Model):
    entries = TextField()
    date = DateTimeField(default = datetime.datetime.now)
    class Meta:
        database = db

def initialize():
    """initializes the database"""
    db.connect()
    db.create_tables([Diary], safe = True)
#end of initialize

def menu_loop():
    """show menu"""
    choice = 0
    while choice != 2:
        print("Enter '2' to quit")
        print('1) to add an entry')
        choice = input()
        if choice == 1:
            add_entry()
#end of menu_loop

def add_entry():
    """add an entry"""
    print("Enter your entry, press ctrl+d when done")
    data = raw_input().strip()
    if data:
        while(True):
            option = raw_input('\nSave entry?[Y/n] ').lower()
            if option == 'y':
                Diary.create(content=data)
                print ("Saved sucessfully!")
                break
            if option == 'n':
                print ("exited")
                break
#end of add_entry

if __name__ == '__main__':
    initialize()
    menu_loop()

Using Sqlite3 through the terminal I get :

Basically everything seems to be working perfectly, except when I try to look into the TEXT entries, it won't show anything as if the text date isn't being stored.

When you create the new diary entry in add_entry you're using the wrong name for the member field. Diary.create(content=data) should be Diary.create(entries=data)
