No they are not two different things. It should be written as "bir şey"

 

Actually the rule for it is really easy. The word "şey" is always written apart from the previous word.

 

bir şey

her şey

I agree with friends. Both ways means same however "şey"  should be written seperately. I sometimes write it as one word

Maybe that is what has been confusing me: sometimes very good language users write it as one word.

 

Thank you, ikicihan, Umut, tunci.

my friends write it as one word (as well as istiyormusun..etc..) even I found it in grammar books like two sepparate words...
