What are good ways to setup the action bar?

My newly 70 mage is struggling to find the right setup, so anyone willing to help share would be greatly appreciated.  :)

Best tip I can give is to have things that are close to one hand (left hand default).  If you have to move your fingers farther than say 5, t, g, b with a default WASD move bind (maybe farther depending on hand size), you're probably too far to the right.  Bind ` to 5, q/e to t, f, g, z to v or b, go from there imo.

My binds:

s-CHAR = shift + char
c-CHAR = ctrl + char
---- : r# Ability = -----: /cast Ability(Rank #)


` : mana tap (lol)
s-` : spellsteal  ----- these two used to be detect / focus detect, but there's no more detect magic :(
1 : blink
2 : r1 FN
3 : fireblast
4 : icelance
5 : Frostbolt
s-5 : r1 Frostbolt
s-1: pet attack
s-2: pet freeze
s-3: pet passive
s-4: summon pet
c-1: arcane torrent (bad keybind)
c-2: iceblock (bad keybind, not too bad)
c-3: coldsnap
c-4: arcane missiles (hardly used)
c-5: alternates between scorch and arcane blast with
a-5: other one from above ^
R: pvp trinket
s-R: healing trinket / dps trinket (/14)
T: CoC
s-T: r1 CoC
Y: AE
s-Y: r1 AE
U: feather fall (lol)
F: /assist
s-F: /focus
G: polymorph
s-G: /cast [target=focus] polymorph
V: counterspell
s-V: /cast [target=focus] counterspell
C: fireward
s-C: frostward
X: decurse
Z: icebarrier
s-Z: mana shield
Mouse Button 4: Autorun (err, bad)
Mouse Button 5: Vent

I'm forgetting something...

Things with bad binds for me:
(iceblock), Arcane torrent, cold snap (fucking control key), autorun (shouldn't be bound lol)

Things that probably should be bound that aren't:
Eating, r1 Ice armor, evocation, mana gem, wand, mount, random buffs (WTB KEYPAD :( ),

Things I need to change:
Q/E need to be skill bound, not strafe.  A/D are already strafe, redundant keybinds.
I need a non-laptop keyboard, because the ctrl button is seriously fucked up here.

~ - coldsnap
1 - lance
2 - FB
3 - CS
4 - fireblast
5 - CoC
6 - summon WE / WE attack target macro
7 - AM
alt + ~ - Fnova (it would make more sense to swap this with the coldsnap binding tho)
alt + 1 - AE
alt + 2 - IB
alt + 3 - CS focus macro
alt + 4 - sheep
alt + 5 - icebarrier
ctrl + 3 - scorch

shift + - 1 pet attack
shift + 2 - pet passive

shift + z - r1 blizzard
shift + x - flamestrike
shift + c - blizzard

F - escape artist
alt+F - PvP Trinket
shift + F - IB with /cancel aura macro

R - Blink

front thumb mouse button - ranged nova
alt + front thumb - fireward
shift + front thumb - frost ward
ctrl + front thumb - decurse

middle mouse - spellsteal
alt + middle mouse - detect magic (/sigh)
ctrl + middlemouse - slowfall
ctrl + middle mouse - wand

back thumb mouse button - vent

alt + f4 - close wow

I really like useing alt + normal keys because it is very comfortable to drop your thumb on the alt key and press the second key of the combo compared to pressing shift with your pinky and twisting your hand around to the other key.
