Python Question

How do I make text go on to the next line (enter/return effect)? Python

I have numerous strings which I am writing into a notepad txt.file via python using

x = open("File", "w")


However i want the strings to be written in the text file in the format:

('Hello')
('Hey')
('Whatever')


Instead of this:

('Hello')('Hey')('Whatever')


I'm missing specific code to achieve the 'keyboard enter/return' affect, so if anyone knows please drop me an answer. Also, I don't want to manually press enter in the actual text file, I want to do it via python. Thanks!

I thought I'd put my comment as an answer.

Essentially you should use a new line character which is \n. "\" is an escape character.
