For regular queries, only new / different rows are written to the log stream. To make the output write everytime, you need to make the schedule query
snapshot
type. Then they will be written into the osqueryd.snapshot.log file.

New output file, for that you will need to write your own logging plugin. At the time AFAIK, there isn't much control (intentionally) on the logger..
