write an integer to file using a function
Hello All - Python newbie here. I develop using pycharm aided by w3schools. I am playing with writing functions atm. Question is, i can't seem to write an integer to file using the code below. it works fine with writing a string to file, but not integer. Is it possible to do so, or there's some rule i'm unaware of? I posted the console output below the code as well. Thanks in advance.

#creating and using a function
z1 = open("C:\Users\Kingsley\Projects\X\wite.csv", "w")  #global variable 01 set, file create/open
v = "python is "       #global variable 02 set
x = "pretty awesome " #global variable 03 set
y = "and amazing" #global variable 04 set
print(v + x + y), "\n"

def joinFunction(): #defining a function called "joinFunction"
  x = 5             #joinFunction has a variable local to it called x. x is equal to a
  y = 6             #joinFunction has a variable local to it called y. y is equal to b
  z = x + y         #local variable z is the value of 5 + 6
  z1.write(z)#>>>>problem code here. i can't  write integer to file. Not sure why? i think it breaks the joinfunction too.

print(v + x + y)       #prints the combination of the global variables defined above


The console output:

C:\Users\Kingsley\Projects\PyCharm\Second\venv\Scripts\python.exe C:/Users/Kingsley/Projects/PyCharm/Second/
python is pretty awesome and amazing

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Users/Kingsley/Projects/PyCharm/Second/", line 14, in <module>
File "C:/Users/Kingsley/Projects/PyCharm/Second/", line 12, in joinFunction
TypeError: expected a string or other character buffer object

Process finished with exit code 1
