Doesn't look like I will get the sonata finished in time

The title basically describes it all, I don't think I can get the sonata finished by 1/27/2019 But at least I got further into sonata composition than I have in the past(finished the first movement, started the second movement). Maybe having the deadline of a month was too strict? Or maybe it was because I got caught up in transcribing pieces.

Piano sonata progress: 1 out of 3

So I am finished with the first movement. Now that all that I have is the slow movement and the rondo, I should be able to finish the sonata in time for Mozart's birthday. Thing is, I'm having an issue when it comes to the section break at the end. I made there be a repeat at the end but with that, the section break delays the repeat by 3 seconds. Is there a way to get it to only delay it in between sections without affecting the repeats?

Transcription Challenge

So I am thinking of transcribing the Nutcracker Suite for piano duet. I think I can still get the Mozart dedicated piano sonata finished by Mozart's birthday if I focus more on the sonata during the day, when my dad isn't using his computer and focus more on the transcription at night. Besides, I have the development section almost finished, a milestone for me in sonata composition. So I basically can dedicate the rest of the month of composition to the second and third movements since the recapitulation will be super easy and I could do it within minutes.

The reason I am going for a piano duet? I have seen the piano solo transcriptions and boy do they look hard, especially all those fast scales. I think it would be easier for a pianist if there was a duet version. Also, there is only 1 piano duet transcription of it on IMSLP, most of them are for something like 6 cellos, or some other instrument group or are single movements. So I figured I could have a go at transcribing the orchestral score into a piano duet score. I also figured I could make it sound richer but still playable if I go with a duet transcription.

So hopefully I can get this transcription done. But I am not forcing a deadline on this like I am with the sonata. I am just hoping I can get it all transcribed.

Problème pour écrire les partitions

Je suis membre de plusieurs chorales et j'enregistre tous nos chants avec MuseScore, qui est un outil formidable pour apprendre les mélodies !
Je voudrais savoir quelle est la méthode pour, en début ou en milieu d'une partition à 3 ou 4 voix de choristes, ne faire apparaître qu'une seule voix de soliste . Autre exemple comment ne faire apparaître que les 2 lignes de piano (une vingtaine de mesures) avant de mettre les différentes voix SATB ?
Merci d'avance pour votre réponse !

About halfway through first movement, want some feedback

 As the title suggests, I am about halfway through the first movement of a  piece I am working on. More specifically, it is the piano sonata that I  am dedicating to Beethoven.

Here is the modulation sequence I plan to use for the development section:

C, Am, F, G, Em, Fm, Bb, Cm

I  have noticed within my own works, that even though technically Bb  doesn't have dominant function in Cm, I can still use it as a sort of  secondary dominant. Probably because it is the relative major of the  dominant of Cm.

Here is the link to what I have of the sonata so far. I was wondering if you could give me some feedback on it.
