Can anyone recommend a good spellsword build for me?

My very first character, way back on 11.11.11 was a Nord Spellsword who dual casted lightning spells then charged in with dual wielding swords. And I never looked back after him. Since then, I've usually stuck with just one of the three adventuring disciplines, only crossing over the crafting skills.

Honestly, I don't really see how to maximize my play sessions if I'm always casting the same "flesh-summon/destro" spells then move on to swords, both in terms of effectiveness and originality.

But I want something new, and since that's the only playstyle I can think of that I haven't played in a long time, I thought I'd give it a shot. Can anyone lay out for me, or point to a video/post of a fun spellsword build?

Use a sword in one hand and Ignite/Paralyze/Close Wounds in the other.

Wear Heavy Armor/Light Armor, and don't bother with dual-cast it's worthless for a Spellsword.

Race doesn't matter.
