Any word lists that I've seen were separated by a new line.
The list can go as long as you like. However, you are confused between brute force & a dictionary attack. A brute force attack isn't limited to a word list. It's a program that combines, words, letters (upper & lower case), numbers & other characters, in various combinations. For example, let's say I found an encrypted password file & ran John The Ripper against it, I would run:
john -i file.txt
The -i is incremental. In other words, I didn't pick a file such as one that you are creating. It's limited. Not everyone uses words anymore. They use character combinations. A remote brute force is a different ball game.

You could always review the dictionary that came with(haven't used it, might not come with), or download a .pw file(and then force open it in notepad) from a source and see how it is set up.
