You're not a programmer quite yet. I like to think of this book as giving you your "programming brown belt". You know enough to start another book on programming and handle it just fine. This book should have given you the mental tools and attitude you need to go through most Python books and actually learn something. It might even make it easy.
I recommend you check out some of these projects and try to build something with them:
Pick one of the above projects, and go through any tutorials and documentation they have. As you go through it type in all of the code and make it work. That's how I do it, that's how every programmer does it. Reading programming documentation is not enough to learn it, you have to do it. After you get through the tutorial and any other documentation they have, make something. Anything will do, even something someone else has already written. Just make something.
Just understand anything you write will probably suck. That's alright though, I suck at every programming language I first start using. Nobody writes pure perfect gold when they're a beginner, and anyone who tells you they did is a huge liar.
Finally, remember that this is something you have to do at least a couple hours a night for a while before you can get good. If it helps, while you're struggling to learn Python every night, I'm hard at work learning to play guitar. I work at it about 2 or 4 hours a day and still practice scales.
Everyone is a beginner at something.
