Here you open a file and assign it to "file_object".

Here you attempt to write to "file" instead of "file_object".  "file"
is the name of a built-in type, hence your error message.

Since you seem to be trying to use shelve, you should also probably be
calling shelve.open to open the file, not just open.

Same issue for all these other statements.
