    For the sentence "I am many things, more than I can write", would it be valid to translate it as "Ich bin viele Sachen, kann ich mehr als schreiben"?

    I'm mostly interested in the "mehr als" there in the middle, if it's used correctly.

    (Please reply in English.)

    No. Your intent would be understood as "I am many things, can I more than write". Obviously the syntax is wrong to represent your wrong syntax in the German sentence, or is your sentence intended as a question?

    A correct sentence is: Ich bin vieles; mehr als ich schreiben kann.
