Joining a writing club can be so beneficial!
They can help improve your writing skills by making suggestions, critiquing and giving feedback.
Make sure your writer's group is a positive experience, though! No need to get extra discouraged for nothing.
I manage an online group here called The Writer's Meow. You can also receive very honest assesments of your work at Urbis.com. Or join a local group - check your local library of book store!
