Pottermore is Progressing

I am still not exactly sure what Pottermore is, but I cannot wait to be able to register. If you are 11 or under, and you had signed up for notifications from them, you must watch out for the magical quill.

What is the magical quill?

“The Magical Quill is located in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It detects the birth of a magical child and writes his or her name down in a large book. Every year, Professor McGonagall checks the book and sends owls to the children who are turning eleven, to inform them that they have a place at Hogwarts. The lucky few who locate The Magical Quill during the Magical Quill challenge (which will run from 31 July to 6 August 2011) will have the chance to register for Pottermore early and gain access to the site before it opens to all in October 2011.”

Are you one of the lucky few who found or hopes to find the magical quill?

What do I do once I find the magical quill?

“Once you have found The Magical Quill, you will be redirected to Pottermore.com. If the registration process is still open for that day, you will be able to submit your details to register to access Pottermore early. It is important to note that finding The Magical Quill does not guarantee you access to registration, as registration will only remain open while the early access places allocated for the relevant day, between 31 July and 6 August, are available.”

But what happens if I don’t find the magical quill?

“There will be plenty of opportunities to find The Magical Quill as we will be revealing a new clue each day from 31 July to 6 August. For those who miss out on early access to Pottermore, please note the site will be open to all from October and you will be able to register after The Magical Quill challenge has closed. Keep checking Pottermore to find out when registration is open to all.”

I must tell you now that you do not search for the magical quill. An email will be sent to you if you signed up for notifications earlier. Unfortunately it is too late to sign up for email notifications, so if you did not it is not the end of the world. On October 1st, registration will be open to the general public. You should check out Pottermore and have a look around at the Q&A and see what will be happening on the website. It looks like it will be very interesting and I cannot wait to be able to go on it.

I hope that you are as excited about this as me.
