Juggling multiple projects myself, how do you time block between projects, jump in and out of the code, and remember where you left off? Roadmaps? Timelines? How do you deal with "coder's block" when you're feeling uninspired with a project?

Typically I will keep a text file in the project with where I "left off" to help jog my memory.

I do use Wunderlist and Trello quite a bit as well to keep a backlog of things I want to work on. If I'm feeling uninspired on a project I don't work on it. I don't like to work on things in that situation because I think forcing yourself to work when you don't feel inspired can lead to burn out. Of course, sometimes you have no choice but to work on something.
