Read the string to be written char by char.
if char = " " then write a new line

I don't know in vbscript, but this is how it works in vb.net

 Dim youroutputstring As String = "I want to go"
 Dim stringlength As Integer = YourOutputString.length
 Dim p As Integer = 1
 Dim a As Integer = 1
 
 Do Until p = stringlength
      If Mid(youroutputstring, p, 1) = " " Then
        ' write word to file
        ' test with: msgbox(Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a))) 
        ' WRITE WITH YOUR OWN CODE: Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a)) & vbcrlf
      a = p
      End If
 p = p + 1
 Loop
 
' print last word also
' test with: MsgBox(Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p + 1 - a)))
' WRITE WITH YOUR OWN CODE: Mid(youroutputstring, a, (p - a)) & vbcrlf
