I like having 3 to 5 projects going so that I actually complete stuff. Another important issue is knowing when to abandon something that isn't working.
Best advice I heard is to stop working on a project right after you do something you're really happy with. That way you are stoked to return to the project later instead of feeling like you're at a dead end.
This is what I do weirdly! It seems to work.. and then you come back with an even better idea.

Whenever I get techno-block on one track, I start working on another. Helps clear the mind... for me at least.
3-5... but I start to get anxious when there's too many projects to think about.
