Need help finding solo piece for Flute!

Hey all! I'm going to audition for my local junior orchestra in the fall, and need some advice... here are the requirements:

A solo or piece of your choosing that fully demonstrates your finest playing, such as a piece you are working on in lessons or a piece you performed with your school

A classical concerto for your instrument of your choice

Major scales and arpeggios up to four flats and sharps

Melodic minor scales and arpeggios up to four sharps and flats

Sight-reading

Reached composers block

So, you know how I have been working on the 50 follower special composition right? Well, I am 2/3 of the way through it and even include a short bit of canon in the composition. But after this canonic moment, I can't seem to make further progress. I know that I want to go back to G major by means of a plagal cadence(which would require me to substitute C major for C#°) and that I want to end the piece with a plagal cadence.

I have been having this composers block for about a week now. I usually embrace it and just move on to composing something else, but this is a 50 follower special composition that I have been working on.
