I suggest jotting down your new ideas (doing it here counts if you'll remember to check!) then keep going as quickly as you can through your current project.

Ideas are easier to handle when they're new. I have several novel partials that stop 50% to 75% into the latest draft for each. Those stories were set aside when major life changes sidetracked me. Going back into a long work after a long break is painful.
