Why does Live Writer no longer accept my Google password?

Something has happened to my Live Writer link to my Blogger.com blog. It refuses to accept my Google password. It won’t let me remove my blog and start all over.

I had to change my Google password some months ago, but it worked for a while. If I can’t figure out what has occurred and how to fix it, I’ll be forced to quit using Live Writer.

Microsoft won’t answer any question! Ggrrr. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    This answer is kind of a shot in the dark, but if you've enable two-step verification (ie. Google Authenticator) on your Google account, you'll need to create an application-specific password for Windows Live Writer and other apps: http://support.google.com/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=185833
