Make entries appear in a new line when appending to a JSON file


I have been dealing with a little problem while programming python database. If I make new entry it will stay in the line with previous and I dont know where should I add n or how could I make it in second line.
Thanks for help.
These are lines we are dealing with.
#edit: using import json
I am new to asking on stackoverflow, I dont think there are more data needed but if I made mistake I will place rest of code

def write_to_file(data):
    with open('database.txt', 'w') as outfile:
        json.dump(data, outfile)

def read_from_file():
    with open('database.txt', 'r') as infile:
        return json.load(infile)

def add_entry(first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth):
    data = read_from_file()
    data.append({'id': first , 'titul': second, 'meno': third, 'priezvisko': fourth, 'ulica a cislo': fifth, 'mesto': sixth, 'psc': seventh, 'tlc': eighth, 'email': ninth})

I tried adding n to nearly every part of the code but nothing helped

Whitespace (i.e., spaces, lines, tabs etc) doesn’t matter in the JSON format. So, for compactness, the JSON module dumps to the file as one condensed chunk of text. This is a feature for many applications (like web services) where transmitting/storing a lower amount of data is valuable.

You could specify something like indent=4 to better format the text.

def write_to_file(data):
    with open('database.txt', 'w') as outfile:
        json.dump(data, outfile, indent=4)
